Boy Scouts Earn Merit Badge

Disability Awareness Merit Badge

On October 18th, The Idaho Wheelchair Tennis Association hosted the first ever event to help Boy Scouts earn the relatively new "Disability Awareness" Merit Badge.  The IWTA team consisted of several chair players and some supporting "up" players.  We provided chairs for the Boy Scouts to take for a test drive and learn some games designed to help teach mobility.  The disabled players took a few minutes to discuss how they were injured and how they have to do things differently than they used to.  The Boy Scouts had several questions that were answered and everyone really enjoyed the interaction.
