New Bowling Program Brings Kids Together
A new bowling program in Waconia is brining kids of all needs and abilities together.
According to the Sun Patriot, unified bowling is a sport that pairs special needs athletes with non-disabled peers to play on the same team. The two groups, who aren’t often in the same classes at school, get together at the bowling alley after school and have tons of fun.
“We’re just helping some kids get better at sports and get some physical activity,” fifth-grader Nathan Langer told the Patriot. “It’s fun to cheer them on. They are fun to be around.”
The unified bowling team is made of 11 Waconia elementary schoolers, grades three through five, the newspaper said.
