Special Olympics Bowling

     What a team we have here in Kern County as a mom of a Special Needs..I LOVE the organization. It allows all of our strong minded and abled bodied children to enjoy some of the favorite things that other kids their age do. Kern County has a very good group of kids and they all try so hard each has made significant progress in their abilities and coordination. Every year I see some faces come and some faces go, some for the good some for the bad. I have been a volunteer mom coach for 11 years now I spend my time with my child as well as other children on the team, and mind you child is not meant literally as some of our players range from 8-65. The SO gets to attend tournaments they go out of town for such and the amount is very limited due to the budget. They are ranked on their abilities and scores rather than if they can lift a ball and throw. There are NO NEGATIVE remarks on my team, we play for fun and I want them to understand you are here to HAVE FUN!!
      Anyways bowling is over for the season, everyone got medals or tropheys, everyone got noticed at the last game, everyone got to play BEAT THE COACHES.Just hope to see many of the same faces come next season, they all playedso well and had such a great time. WAY TO GO KERN COUNTY!!
