Ice action included slalom, shooting goals with pucks and balls, and the ever popular crash tower made of foam blocks. A few new spontaneous ways to play catch emerged - a rolling by hand version and a kicking version (very gently with skates on!). New and returning participants included people in power wheelchairs, a group of people with brain injuries, a trio of spanish speaking sisters, and of course our favorite man in bear paw mittens below.
Kelly Rink in Jamaica Plain for a program we will offer there on Tuesday, February 15 from 11am to 2pm. I'm very excited we are able to offer an adaptive skating program at an OUTDOOR rink in Boston. Everything there looks easily accessible and the rink is around the corner from a T stop (48 Jamaica Plain Center) - which is good because parking is limited. (Now to find out if the T stop is accessible!) All was quiet until 3pm when older kids arrived for after school exercise. What a treat it was to catch a glimpse of their energy on the ice!
|Kelly Rink is located at 1 Marbury Terrace in J.P.|
