Tonight was my first wheelchair basketball practice. It was mainly administrative, but after we were done with the boring stuff I took part in a 5v5 game. I was the only new guy out there (I think the next newest guy had been playing for 3 years) and unfortunately it really showed! Haha. I had a few good plays including a couple of steals and a rebound that I put back up and made, but those were the lone bright spots in a lot of awkward attempts to not block my own players from getting in the right position or driving for the hoop!
I am definitely going to have to put in a lot of work to get better at this, but it was a whole lot of fun being out there and really being active for the first time since I had my amputation. I’m looking forward to a great season!
