The 13th Annual Locomotion Goal Ball Tournament (Soccer for Blind & Visually Impaired athletes) was a success with 17 Teams participating from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the U.S.A. California had 3 teams, also Arizona, Colorado, New York, Texas and Utah.
Men and women participated with many groups volunteering their services including our own Global Kalinga e-Rotary Club. And of course, families and friends also volunteered. The City of Bell and Bell High School were our hosts.
The blind athletes protected their goal by listening to bells located inside the soccer ball. They were able to defend their goal by hearing the ball coming and blocking.What a feat. -
How appropriate it was for the participants to play in Bell--don't you think? The Locomotion Team practices on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the gym at Family Church on Greenleaf Ave., in Whittier. You are always welcome to come and watch or even be a ball retriever. You may also invite a blind friend.
