Blind & Visually Impaired Sports League
Sports and Fun for All!!
The Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind(AIDB) Tuscaloosa Blind and Visually Impaired(VI) Sports League is here to promote athleticism in members of the community who are blind or VI. We do this by introducing consumers to different sports and activities that can be done by all no matter how much vision they have.
For certain members of the blind community keeping active is the hardest part of being blind or VI, and in some cases, the nonactivity can make their vision and health even worse.
The league meets every month or every other month and plays a sport that is appropriate for the time of year.
Possible Sports and Activities:
- Beepball (blindfolded baseball)
- Goalball (team sport for the blind, learn more)
- Tandem Cycling
- Tandem Kayaking
This is not an exhaustive list, we will try and do any sport or activity a team member wants to try within reason.
