The Fort Lauderdale Junior Sharks Wheelchair Basketball League is officially underway and have started practicing.

Davie, United States - January 13, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Dynamic Orthopedic and Memorial Adaptive Sports & Recreation have recently teamed up to to help bring the excitement and joy of wheelchair basketball to kids who are dealing with severe disabilities.

The amazing prosthetics and orthotics treatment of Dynamic Orthopedics has become well known in the South Florida region. This league starts a new path of not only helping treat these children but also to greatly help enrich their lives by participating in active, competitive sports.

The Junior Wheelchair Basketball league’s official name is the Fort Lauderdale Junior Sharks. Their first practice of 2018 was on January 7th. They will be practicing bi-weekly from 4:00pm-6:00pm at Carter Park off of Sunrise Blvd. The age for the kids participating is between ages 5-13.

Playing competitive sports will greatly help these children who are dealing with an enormous difficulty in life to gain confidence. The reaction and feedback from the children thus far has been exceedingly positive and encouraging.

Dynamic Orthopedics’ owner Melisa Chang had this to say, “You can feel the overwhelming amount of positive energy when watching these kids enjoy the sport of basketball. So far we are only beginning practices. This is a work in progress to gain more participation, build numbers of participants and help these kids learn the game. Some have never played before. We are teaching them how to be competitive, how to maneuver the wheelchair and bounce a ball, increasing their endurance, their aim and their strength.”

The children are also very fortunate to have a coach with an intimate understanding of their life situation who has played wheelchair basketball himself. Melisa Chang said, “Coach Luis Amaro is doing a great job working with them. He has an understanding of what it takes to play wheelchair basketball at a competitive level. He himself uses a wheelchair.”

The Latest: Democrats, Republicans feud over shutdown blame

Jan 21, 2018

WASHINGTON — The Latest on the government shutdown (all times local): 7 p.m. Hours after shuttering much of the federal government, feuding Democrats and Republicans in Congress spent the day dodging blame for a paralyzing standoff over immigration. The two sides show few signs of progress on negotiations to end it. The finger-pointing has played out in rare weekend proceedings in both the House and Senate, where lawmakers have been eager to show voters they are actively working for a solution — or at least actively making their case why the other party is at fault. Democrats refused to provide...

Mulvaney has been at center of last 2 government shutdowns

Jan 21, 2018

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's budget chief Mick Mulvaney stormed Washington as a tea party lawmaker elected in 2010, and he hasn't mellowed much as director of the Office of Management of Budget at the White House. In both spots, he's been at the center of government shutdowns. As a congressman in 2013, Mulvaney was among a faction on the hard right that bullied GOP leaders into a shutdown confrontation by insisting on lacing a must-pass spending bill with provisions designed to cripple President Barack Obama's signature health care law. Then, the fast-talking South Carolina Republican downplayed the impact of...

Long shutdown could hurt economy, a short one just 'a blip'

Jan 21, 2018

If the shutdown lasts just days or even a couple of weeks, the robust stock market that President Donald Trump has boasted about probably will emerge unscathed. A longer impasse, economists say, could rattle consumer and investor confidence, pulling stocks lower and dragging down the economy. Economists and investment advisers interviewed by The Associated Press generally didn't foresee the shutdown that began Saturday lasting long enough to stifle the economy much. With pivotal elections in November, both parties would want to shield voters from any pain. Investors and consumers are feeling optimistic now based on the tax cut signed into...

The Latest: Congress seems no closer to reopening government

Jan 21, 2018

WASHINGTON — The Latest on the government shutdown (all times local): 2:55 p.m. Republicans and Democrats appear to be no closer to ending a government shutdown, and the White House is indicating it's waiting for Democrats to drop their demand that a funding bill include protections for younger immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Budget director Mick Mulvaney and legislative affairs director Marc Short are lobbing verbal attacks at Democrats for blocking a spending bill over the unrelated legislation. Short told reporters Saturday that "it's like a 2-year-old temper tantrum." Mulvaney says the administration is trying to mitigate...

Trump tweets about women's marches as protesters gather

Jan 21, 2018

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump tweeted that it was a "perfect day" for women to march to celebrate the "economic success and wealth creation" that's happened during his first year in office — while women across the nation rallied against him and his policies. "Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months," the Republican wrote Saturday afternoon. "Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!" But people participating in rallies and marches in the U.S. and around the world Saturday denounced Trump's views on...
