Practical Pointers, v5 n10 May 1982
The booklet reviews ways in which students with crutches may be helped to successfully participate in four specific sports. General guidelines for modifying programs for this group include the importance of thorough assessment, attention to details of the game play, and consideration of equipment and supply alterations. Each of the four sports is addressed separately (sample suggestions in parentheses): badminton (use of an extended racket to extend reach, allow the student to sit while particpating); golf (use of a golf club with an angled shaft); archery (allow the student to kneel or lean against a raised bench); and tennis (use of a tennis ball retriever and modifications in the basic grip and standard techniques).
