On October 27, a story was aired on WCCO-TV featuring We Love To Play, a sports and recreation program for youth and adults with disabilities. For decades, there have been opportunities within the Minnesota State High School League for people with disabilities to play sports while in high school. We Love To Play was created in 1994 to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to continue to play sports and stay active after graduating. There are multiple sports played throughout the year, including adapted softball, football, soccer and floor hockey.
I have been a part of We Love To Play since 2011 and love the program because it is a great way to stay active and to build relationships. While it can get intense, we have a lot of fun! I would recommend We Love To Play to any youth or adult with disabilities who loves sports and having fun! In addition to the WCCO report, make sure to check out the We Love To Play website.
P.S. On an unrelated note, it has been announced that Paul Molitor is expected to replace Ron Gardenhire as manager of the Minnesota Twins. Click for more information. There will be an official announcement made on Tuesday.
