Assist Goalball with the New York Knights

The New York Knights, affiliated with the United States Association of Blind Athletes, is a team of blind and visually impaired athletes that compete in Goalball. Goalball is played on an indoor court consisting of tactile zones so that athletes can feel the locations. Players roll a ball with bells to get it past the opposing team.

They are currently seeking volunteers to help set up the court and retrieve balls that go out of bounds in a fast-paced Goalball practice. These practices run every Sunday from 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

WHERE:
Chelsea Recreation Center
430 West 25th Street
New York, NY 10001

WHEN:
Every Sunday, 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

The New York Association for Blind Athletes (NYABA) was formed as a result of the International Games for the Disabled (now called the Paralympics). These Games were played in 1984 on Long Island, New York, and NYABA became an affiliated chapter of the United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) in 1985. Their organization serves both individuals who are blind and individuals who are visually impaired, providing athletic support at the local, state, national, and international level of competition in sports (track & field, goalball, wrestling, judo & swimming.) The athletes compete at both blind and sighted competitions.
