Tallmadge schools to offer wheelchair basketball team

Starting in November, the Tallmadge City School District will offer students with disabilities a shot at athletics with the introduction of a wheelchair basketball program. On June 21, the Tallmadge Board of Education approved hiring a coach for the program, which will make Tallmadge the third district in the state to boast a school-based wheelchair basketball team.

The co-gender program will be open to youngsters enrolled in the Tallmadge City School District in first through 12th grade; an informational meeting for parents is scheduled for Sept. 27. There are presently nine students who would qualify to participate, according to Rebecca Furbay, director of student services for Tallmadge schools; a team with 10 to 12 members is the goal says Lisa Followay, the founder and executive director of Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio. "We don't have that many kids in wheelchairs in our school district" is a common response to the idea of introducing such a program, Followay says, "and you probably don't, but when you start looking at qualifying disabilities, you start to find there are more kids eligible for this than you thought."

The team was on the floor at the JAR last night for halftime of the UA/IPFW game. They did an outstanding job. Congrats to the kids and the folks that put this together.
