Athlete Lucas Strohmenger On His Association with RHISP: I Feel Lucky January 1st, 2011

Joining RHISP has been great for me.  I love having an outlet where I can be active again!

Being part of the tennis team is super fun. I can hardly wait for the tournament season to get here so that I can see how all of my practicing over the winter has improved my game.  I’m also looking forward to seeing the friends I made during last summer’s tournaments again.

The clinics RHISP provide are a great way to get involved with the program and try out a bunch of sports so that you can see which sports are a good fit for you.  I’m really looking forward to the next clinic, adaptive skiing!  Monoskiing gives you a sense of freedom and independence that I have yet to experience in any other adaptive sport (though waterskiing comes close).
January will mark the one-year anniversary of my participation in RHISP.  I wish I had found out about the program and adaptive sports offered sooner.  I feel very lucky to live in a city where so many adaptive opportunities are offered to kids and adults.
