Wheelchair Softball - Adults

If you enjoy hearing the crack of a bat and the roar of a crowd, wheelchair softball may be for you. Team members learn fundamental softball skills -- batting, fielding and base running -- in addition to the thrill of participating in the national tournament.

Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute hosts the Rolling Twins and Jr. Rolling Twins teams.

Join today! Wheelchair softball is a fun, team-building, confidence-boosting activity. 

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.

 

Our COVID-19 Plan for Sports & Recreation

The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, interns and staff is our priority. Before deciding to return to play, it is important to consider your personal and family health circumstances. If in doubt, you are encouraged to participate virtually.
