Northwest Association for Blind Athletes to Host Hockey Experience at Tacoma Twin Rinks on February 8 & 9, 2020

 

Vancouver, Washington—February 4, 2020—Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) will be hosting two hockey experiences for individuals who are blind or visually impaired at Tacoma Twin Rinks, in Tacoma, WA. NWABA’s sports and physical activities are designed to build confidence by stepping outside one’s comfort zone, to build community with peers who understand what it is like to be visually impaired, and encourage independence through an active, healthy lifestyle.

 

NWABA’s hockey experience will give people who are blind and visually impairment an opportunity to learn basic skills and fundamentals for participating in hockey. Activities will include orienting individuals to the ice rink, individual skill work for all levels, group drills to practice stopping, passing, and shooting, then a scrimmage and additional skill-based games. To reserve your space as an athlete for one or both events, register online at www.nwaba.org/events or email ogramsteam@nwaba.org">programsteam@nwaba.org.

 

Donations to support sports and physical activity for individuals who are blind or visually impaired are accepted by mailing a check to PO BOX 65265, Vancouver, WA, 98665 or making an online gift at www.nwaba.org. For more information on Northwest Association for Blind Athletes, please contact Billy Henry at 1-360-718-2826, or visit www.nwaba.org.

 

About NWABA:
The mission of Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) is to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. A group of students who were visually impaired formed the association in 2007 to ensure that people who are blind were participating in sports and physical activity. Today, NWABA is a rapidly expanding 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides 1,700 children, youth, and adults with visual impairments tailored programming which improves self-confidence and self-esteem, promotes independence, creates an inclusive community of supporters, and builds the skills necessary to succeed in all areas of life including school and employment.
