March 2012 Basketball Tournament

The March 2012 Basketball Tournament was a lot of fun! Along with our regular games, other highlights included an adaptive game, a free throw competition, and our traditional basketball raffle. 

For the adaptive game, students choose a staff member to push their wheelchairs to the nets, which are designed for individuals in wheelchairs.  Staff are honored to assist their students in the game, and the students love the opportunity to play competitively.

Parents and community members joined us to cheer on the students, and a great time was had by all!
