HILARY ABRAHAM has been involved in Para-Rowing since 2007. She spent many years teaching blind and visually impaired children to row and developed a coaching methodology which has proved to be highly effective.
Since 2010 she has been coaching people with other disabilities and using her lateral thinking skills to provide suitable equipment ‘on a shoestring’. Undeterred by the lack of proper facilities, equipment or financial backing, she has managed to teach a number of people with various disabilities to row, and at one time, three of South Africa’s National team had been taught by her.
In this booklet, Hilary shares her tips for providing a successful Para-programme with little more than energy and passion. It is a ‘must read’ for anybody interested in the subject.
