In a medical model program, if a wheelchair athlete were to fall out of their wheelchair while playing their sports someone would “run over, pick them up and put their back in the chair.

In a sports model program, athletes who use wheelchairs are taught to get themselves back in their chairs.

Today’s shout out goes to Kumaka Jensen who is the first boy in his school to play regular league soccer using a wheelchair. Congratulations to the Fountain Valley school administrators who figured out a way for him to play with all the kids! He’s going to be a goalie!

There were sign ups at school last week for noon league soccer. Kumaka signed himself up, not knowing that he was the first kid in a chair to play soccer with the typical kids at school.
