1Hey Coach,
I would like to get fit and stay fit but I'm in a wheelchair. I don't have to worry about hurting myself or anything but I can't feel or move anything from the waist down. Are there any sports or exercises that I could do?

Hey megz369

While being in a wheelchair can have its limitations, it shouldn't restrict you from playing sports or exercising. Thousands of people in wheelchairs in North America and around the world participate in dozens of different sports including basketball, rugby, racquetball, cycling, ice hockey, swimming and tennis. In fact, many of the world's best wheelchair athletes will be competing at the 2004 Paralympics in Athens, Greece in September, 2004.

While you may feel limited at times by being in a wheelchair, it's important your body gets proper exercise. Your P.E. teacher at school or someone at your local community center should be able to give you some more information on wheelchair sports programs at your school or in your area. By getting involved in wheelchair sports, you'll be able to stay in shape and meet other athletes and friends. For more information on wheelchair sports, you can also check out these links:

  • www.wsusa.org - Wheelchair Sports USA.
  • www.cwsa.ca - Canadian Wheelchair Sports Association.
  • www.blazesports.com - Blaze Sports helds organize wheelchair sports programs, summer camps and competitions.

    Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
