The bowling team here at Westside has proven to be a fantastic way to get kids with disabilities involved in team sports and a chance to compete, and this year the team is back with a new coach, Kari Wilson. This season Wilson will be learning along with the members.

“This will be a learning experience for me too, since I’ve never done this before,” said Wilson.

The bowling team’s goals are just like any other sports would be. This opportunity gives disabled students here at Westside to get that chance to play.

“We want our kids to have fun…we want to allow the students to get to know each other on more of a social level than just getting to see one another during school,” Wilson added.

For these kids, Wilson would like to teach them more skills that they can use later in life, through bowling.

“We want to give them an understanding of bowling and team sports,” she said.

Overall Wilson is very excited for this season, and to see the bowling team in action.

“I’m excited for the experience, I’m excited to see the kids interact with their peer mentors, and be social in an environment outside of school,” she stated.

The bowling team’s season will begin later this fall.
