Photojournalist of the Day: Pittaya P. (Thailand)
Yesterday we transitioned from Chicago to the University of Illinois so today was our first full day of camp. Everything has been good so far from the accommodations to the cafeteria and the gymnasium. The training been excellent including the content and all relevant staff. The team leading the coaching clinic are the “trainers of trainers” and have been very helpful and supportive throughout the camp.
I have been quite impressed and I hope to be able to reap as much knowledge as possible to apply to the development of the sport especially through my role with the national wheelchair basketball team of Thailand.
Finally, I would like to thank all the staff and related people on this program, and hope that this beneficial experience will happen again for future Sports Visitor groups.
The Sports Visitor Program entitled, "Youth Wheelchair Basketball, Disability Rights, and Inclusion", brings 14 participants from Kazakhstan and Thailand to the U.S. for a fast-paced short-term sports cultural exchange.
