That first time I’ll never forget how different it felt to any other sports that I had done, mainly due to the fact that it wasn’t in a wheelchair, coupled with how the sledge glided & moved. It just gave me a sense of speed that I had never had and it was physically challenging.
Being able to hit someone with my body, or an elbow and knock them over or send them flying, no other sport had let me do that, let alone encourage that kind of physical contact. Society really try’s to protect someone with a disability and shelter them from that kind of thing. It was and still is immense fun and never fails to put a smile on my face.
