|Bay Cove Day Habilitation joined us on the ice for a variety|
of spontaneous games.
|Karl Pastore from DCR and Alejandra Taco set up their shots.|
On an ice sled, I parked myself in a goal made of two orange cones with my camera and sticks. Soon everyone was taking shots towards me, as I alternated between using hockey sticks to defend the goal and taking pictures. Such multi-tasking allowed for quite a few goals scored!
There is nothing like a little bit of hockey to get yourself warm. Hockey, played lightly in our programs, helps people build their skating skills, providing focus and engagement with others. Some of us forgot the cold as we practiced passing pucks and a ball, setting up shots. Sue Tracy and Karen Foster from All Out Adventures helped people build their game by gently returning pucks to new skaters. Players took advantage of multiple pucks to do back-to-back attacks.
|Alejandra Taco - a natural ace on the ice!|
If you live in or around Boston, Worcester, or Holyoke - check out our DCR REC Connect facebook page and join Alejandra and others who are linking together via facebook to share adaptive recreation opportunities!!! We skate monthly INDOORS in all three cities so you don't even have to brave the cold wind, except perhaps on your way in the door!
