    Looking for R,S,T&H in Tampa Bay area

    I have been in a chair for two years now and I was very active in sports prior to my SCI and I'm looking to find out what out there to do? I've seen people playing rugby and that looked like a lot of fun does anyone have any ideals?

    Hey Sarge, have you tried calling the VA Hospital in Tampa and ask for the Rec Therapist? Tampa's VA, for those who don't know, has a SCI Specialty Center.

    Under the Wounded Warrior Project, actually looks more like the fringe, is http://www.dsusa.org/calendars-wwdsp-calendar.html

    Hate to see another person join CC but glad you found us.

    I'm a cold war vet but we have vets from all the services and I think one going back to WW2. Glad you made it back.

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    We have a rugby team in tampa but rugbys only for quads. We do let other people play with us during the summer though. There is also a basketball and softball team in tampa also.
