Our annual goalball tournament with South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired actually took place this year! Last year it was cancelled due to weather, so we were excited to venture to Aberdeen, SD on April 5th. We were welcomed with various posters posted throughout the school. On Friday evening we enjoyed pizza in the school’s dining room and were entertained by the SD student’s forensic speeches. SD students shared poems and stories by authors such as Shel Silverstein and Roald Dahl. From there we all went to Skate Away and had the opportunity to roller skate, socialize, and play video games. Everyone had the choice of “old school” roller skates or skating on roller blades. One of our students had no fear and was out skating every moment he could! When we got back to SDSBVI, staying in the dorms at the residential school was a fun and different experience for many of our students. Saturday morning was filled with goalball! The students played numerous games, switched up teams and even involved parents, siblings and staff. Collaborating with SD School for the Blind and Visually Impaired for our goalball tournaments is a fun, physical opportunity for our students! They develop friendships and experience new adventures.
