This year, Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Sports Program (RHISP) has partnered with the Monon Community Center located in Carmel, Indiana to host the first annual RHI Sports Naptown Classic youth wheelchair basketball tournament on Saturday, January 29th and Sunday, January 30th! There will be fourteen teams attending from all over the Midwest, two competitive divisions, and close to 120 youth wheelchair basketball athletes participating.
The RHI Sports Naptown Classic will provide an opportunity for youth athletes with disabilities to compete together and challenge each other in a clash of determination and talent.
All of the proceeds from this inaugural event will support the two RHI Youth Wheelchair Basketball teams: RHI Mini Pacers (ages 7 -12) and RHI Racers (ages 13-18). Two of 15 adaptive sports teams offered through the RHI Sports Program, the RHI Youth Wheelchair Basketball teams practice October though April and compete all over the United States. Completely funded through philanthropic support and facilitated by a large volunteer base, this program has depended on the generous support of the community since its inception.
The 2011 RHI Sports Naptown Classic will not only bring crucial support to this valuable program, but will also showcase the accomplishments of RHI Sports Youth Wheelchair Basketball athletes and highlight the importance of providing athletic opportunities to people of all abilities in our community.
Games will be played on Saturday from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday from 9am to 1pm. Admission is free and we invite everyone to come out and watch! Find out more by emailing Jake Patrick at RHISP or by visiting http://2011naptownclassic.eventbrite.com!
