The Raider store is now online! A proceed of each sale goes directly into the team
und. I hope everyone enjoys shopping in the Raiders store.
First week of practice is in the books. Great job by all the athletes. The coaches are really looking forward to the season. Also I'm awaiting work on when our new uniforms will be in. Once we have them, then a picture night will be scheduled.
Stay warm and we will see everyone next week.
I am the head coach for the Rochester raiders adapted floor hockey team. Please view the short video link "Rochester raiders Promotional Video" that was made by one of our former players. We are looking for some new players to join our team in 2013-14. Could you please send this link/info onto any parents, adapted PE teachers or others who may be interested? The team is a co-ed team (boys and girls) grades 7-12 with kids with PHYSICAL impairments. If you know of any students that could benefit from this program please feel free to give them my contact information and/or contact the Century High School athletic office (507-328-5140).
Click on the AFH Summer Camp link for more info about a free summer camp the last week (M-Th) in July @ Friedell Middle School for kids with the same needs (grades 3-12)
Thanks so much,
Rochester Raiders AFH Coach
The mission for Adapted Athletics is to provide youth with disabilities the same opportunity as other students to enjoy the benefits of a quality high school sports program.
ABOUT INTERSCHOLASTIC ADAPTED ATHLETICS
Interscholastic sports are the most competitive of all sports programs at the high school level and are the only sports sanctioned by the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL). Adapted Athletics are interscholastic sports that are just as competitive as football, hockey or any other high school varsity sport. Adapted Athletics emerged and developed to this point over the last 20 years with considerable input from many sources including coaches, educators, former players and high school league officials. In fact, it was the players themselves that wanted an opportunity to play in a sports program that was "just like the programs offered to their classmates".
The goal of the program has always been to provide sports experiences for high school athletes with disabilities in the same manner that they have been provided for non-disabled athletes. The organization wanted to provide interscholastic sports opportunities where none previously existed. This has been achieved in the state of Minnesota. Minnesota is the first state where adapted sports have been officially sanctioned by a state high school league.
