Physical activity is an important part of recovery. It not only keeps the body healthy but, also, the mind. Participants at AIM House benefit from a variety of resources that allow them to stay physically active; common ones include rock climbing, boxing, and general gym practices, but perhaps the favourite of all the options Boulder and AIM House have to offer is indoor soccer.
“We’ve got a good core group that comes out and plays, it’s a lot of fun getting out there and playing games every weekend” -Jarrett, participant in the Castle program and Goalie for the indoor soccer team.
Every other week AIM House reserves a field at the local indoor soccer complex, Boulder Indoor Soccer (BIS), for participants to stretch their legs and have some fun playing soccer with, or more excitingly, against each other. A number of the participants of the program eagerly await the the arrival of soccer day each week and that feeling of anticipation is shared so heavily by many participants of the programs that one of our other members, Zach, took it upon himself to create an AIM House competitive team for one of Boulder’s indoor soccer leagues.
The team, comprised of participants from both programs, plays nearly every Sunday in the adult coed league at BIS. Even though the team hasn’t won a game yet, everyone is still fired up to come out and give their best each week. As a matter of fact, losing only makes them want to play harder. So, come and join us sometime on the field. We’d love to lose to you.
