You may be familiar with Wheelchair Basketball, but have you ever heard of Beep Baseball or Quad Rugby? The Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Sports Program (RHISP) currently offers 15 different sports teams and 40 introductory sports clinics for people with physical disabilities. This program enables people with disabilities to have the same opportunities as athletes without disabilities. The RHISP includes Power Soccer, tennis, racing, golf, and water skiing, as well as weekend activities like scuba diving, rock climbing and horseback riding.
