Wheelchair Softball - Adults
The Courage Kenny Rolling Twins, in partnership with the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball, are managed and run by Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute. Courage Kenny offers an adult team for athletes ages 18+. The adult Rolling Twins focus on the fundamentals of softball, through weekly practices and scrimmages at Brooklyn Park Recreation and Park Department's dedicated wheelchair softball field. The Adult Twins is an environment that focuses on the team aspect. This team competes in games and tournaments each year for a chance to participate in the Wheelchair Softball World Series in August.
Participants must have a permanent lower extremity impairment to participate including, but not limited to amputee, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and spina bifida.
It may be possible to join this class after the series starts; please call to inquire.
Good to know
Wheelchair softball is similar to standard softball, but altered rules accommodate the use of wheelchairs and players with varying ability levels. It is played on a hard surface instead of grass so players have an easier time pushing from base to base and uses a softer ball so players do not need a glove.
