Connections: adaptive sports for kids with disabilities

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

We talk about adaptive sports for kids with disabilities. It's in advance of the Little League World Series Challenger Exhibition Game, which will air on WXXI-TV this weekend.

The Challenger division includes children with physical and intellectual disabilities, and we have a Challenger program here in Rochester.

We'll talk to an organizer and a player with the Webster Challenger program, and we'll talk to an organizer and camper at Camp Abilities -- a camp for kids with visual impairments. It's a conversation about inclusion and more. 

Guests are:

  • Ron Kampff, organizer of the Webster Challenger Baseball League
  • Anthony Vignare, member of the Webster Challenger Baseball Team
  • Matthew Farwell, Camp Abilities graduate assistant
  • Chris Smoker, camper at Camp Abilities
