Second annual NubAbility #DontNeed2 Florida Camp for kids with limb-loss in partnership with the Minnesota Twins

NubAbility Athletics The NubAbility Athletic Foundation will host the second annual #DontNeed2 Florida Camp in partnership with the Minnesota Twins Jan. 1 through Jan. 2 for children ages 4 to 16 with congenital or traumatic limb-loss involving one or more limbs. NubAbility will hold a STRONG Camp, Jan. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Daily Grind CrossFit Gym in Fort Myers, focusing on adaptive strengthening, conditioning, speed, agility, sport specific workouts, yoga for athletes and P.E. skills, and hosted by Fit Nation Magazine, Daily Grind CrossFit and Ruby and Pearls Yoga. A camp focusing on baseball, softball and soccer will be held Jan. 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, hosted by the Minnesota Twins. The #DontNeed2 Florida Camp is for children who are very mobile and desire to compete in mainstreamed school or league baseball, softball, soccer, track and field. Camp fees are $50 for each day and registration is open online at NubAbility.org.

The #DontNeed2 Florida Camp is led by founder and head coach, Sam Kuhnert, a former one-handed college baseball pitcher and college pitching coach, and his coaching team of accomplished athletes, with limb-loss, who have played at top levels of sport. NubAbility has held various sport camps for adaptive youth athletes for five years. This is its second annual camp in Fort Myers with the Minnesota Twins organization. Hayden Filson-Thompson of Texas, who played college softball, and Ryan Hamner of Orlando, an amputee who played for Rhode Island, will lead the baseball and softball camp. Minnesota Twins head pitching coach coordinator, and former MLB player, Eric Rasmussen, will lend his coaching talent to the event for the second year in a row. One-handed glove transfers, batting grips, stances, fielding, pitching, throwing, catching and base running will be covered for all limb-differences. The more experienced players will benefit from one on one instruction from college and professional coaches.

“I get to work along side my mentor, Eric Rasmussen doing what I love, getting these kids in the game of my passion. That has me pumped!” Kuhnert said.

NubAbility soccer coach Breana McMahon, an amputee, former college player and college and high school coach, who is from Orlando, joined by Lizzie Ridder, former college player, and Mathew “Flowhawk” Hawkins, will lead the soccer camp at a field adjacent to Hammond Stadium. The focus of this camp will be on dribbling, passing and scoring on prosthetic legs and with those of upper limb-loss. How to achieve and maintain balance and agility, defend and goal tending will also be taught at the youth’s level of play.

“If you have NubAbility Soccerbeen coached properly and you work harder than the rest, you will succeed. I am proof.” McMahon said.

Former Paralympic volleyball player and coach, and now adaptive strength expert and trainer, Dave Newkirk of Kansas, will be conducting the STRONG Camp. He will be assisted by Paralympic gold medal hopeful, William Regas Woods and track star Nick Rogers, who will conduct the speed portion of the camp. Adaptive yoga instructor, Heather Holland, of Ruby and Pearl’s Yoga in Fort Myers will lead the group in adaptive yoga for athletes. Heather is the aunt of NubAbility founder, Sam Kuhnert, and has worked with him through the years in his personal training for collegiate baseball. Physical education classes are often more challenging for P.E. teachers than the actual limb-different student. In NubAbility’s P.E. Skills session, NubAbility will instruct the athletes not only how they can achieve success in standard P.E. class skills, such as jumping rope one handed or on prosthetics, but also how to communicate their adaptive abilities to their teachers.

“I have traveled the world competing and coaching mainstreamed and adaptive sport. I know what the opportunity to compete has meant to me and the life lessons I have learned from it. I intend to provide professional instruction in a safe environment for kids who have also experienced life as a limb-different athlete.” Newkirk said.

The #DontNeed2 Florida Camp is designed for growth over the years and to establish a service for kids with limb-loss that desire to compete in mainstreamed sport in the southeast region of the U.S. However, several families are flying in from across the U.S. for this life-changing event that not only prepares the youth athletes for mainstreamed competition, but also encourages courage and confidence in sport and in life. If you know of a child who has a limb-difference, ages 4-17, have them email NubAbility@gmail.com for more information. No child is ever turned away due to financial hardship. Camp fees are $50. However, local sponsors have provided 10 scholarship opportunities. Simply use the coupon code TWINS in the payment portion of the online registration, available on NubAbility.org and in the cover photo of NubAbility’s Facebook page.

About NubAbility

A 501(c)3 nonprofit, NubAbility Athletics holds a large four-day camp in Southern Illinois every July that serves over 135 limb-different youth from across the nation. NubAbility Athletics has over 45 volunteer limb-different athletes as coaches and mentors that coach over 18 different school sanctioned sports. NubAbility also holds one-sport, one-day mini camps across the nation. NubAbility will feature its first multiple day outdoorsman camp outside of Atlanta Georgia in late July with Hunter Cayll, aka Nubs the No Handed Shooter as the Head Coach. Shooting, archery and fishing are all team sports in many schools across the country and NubAbility believes all kids have a right to compete for team spots regardless of the number of limbs they have. The next event scheduled is a #DontNeed2 Bully Proof Camp on Jan. 17 in Madisonville, Kentucky.
