• SportsFeelGoodStories.com was PE Central’s Web Site Review of the Month for October, 2009. PE Central is “The Premier Web site for Health and Physical Education.” Here’s an excerpt from the review:
“…I was knocked back in my seat with emotional tugs at my heart. Tears streamed down my face as I read the story about the softball player who hit her only home run of her career and torn her ACL; I was touched to hear about how she was able to make it around the bases.
This site contains many stories that you could use in your teaching and coaching to inspire your students and to give them a little background information about that particular sport. It is peppered with current stories, past stories, and stories about current events; one that caught my eye was about a blind basketball player who was the designated free throw shooter-you’ll have to read the story to find out the details. Each of the stories I read was a quick read, nothing overly lengthy. I was pleased to see what an exceptional job they did including both genders as well as those who have physical challenges.”
