This page was created to use as a part of a guest lecture for a Kinesiology undergrad class at the University of British Columbia. The idea was simple – I had a limited amount of time with the class and knew that I was only offering only a ‘taster’ of disability sport. I knew (or hoped) that students would have additional questions – both practical and theoretical – and I wanted to provide an opportunity for them to ask these questions. And on the premise that ‘if you’re wondering about something there’s a good chance someone else is as well’ I decided to ask students to post questions here publicly where everyone could read them – and read the answers! I won’t be answering all the questions myself – I’ll be asking the ‘experts’ in the field (aka the blog team, other athletes, coaches, volunteers and blog readers to help out).
If you’re not a student in the course please feel free to contribute questions of your own.
