Special Announcement about Cobra Management

It is now 16 months ago that the first Covid Cases were reported here in Seattle & our region has had many challenges. Vision Loss Connections was conerned about the sustainability of our local Goalball Program. Discussions and planning started and we are proud to announce that the Seattle Cobras Goalball Team will take their place along with other successful Paralympic Sports Teams under the management of Seattle Adaptive Sports. To insure the success of the Cobras, we really wanted the team to have the advantages of being part of a larger nonprofit organization based in Seattle. Vision Loss Connections has also donated $40,000.00 to Seattle Adaptive Sports to help with Cobra Support. The Cobras will now join with the Storm & Sonics Wheelchair Basketball Teams to lead Seattle Paralympic Sports to Greatness. We all look forward to the time when gym based recreation programs can safely resume again. Then Indoor Sports such as Goalball can come alive with Cobra Coaches,once again calling out "Play Goalball"

Special Thanks to Seattle Parks & Recreation for funding King Cobras Goalball Team

About Goalball and the King Cobras

Described as "soccer for the blind", goalball provides a team sport outlet for the blind and visually impaired community. It was created by World War II veterans who wanted to continue to play sports after becoming visually impaired. Teams of three stand on either side of a court marked with rope so players can feel the boundary lines. Players serve a ball with bells inside of it to the opposite side of the court, trying to get it past defenders to score a goal. Today, a dedicated group of players and advocates have started Seattle's first goalball team in over 30 years: the King Cobras.

We look forward to some exciting games and new opportunities!
