Noah Isley

Noah’s mother shared, “When my son was one and a half years old, we discovered an incredible organization called USSA. As a young mother with a child who has Spina Bifida, I was eager to learn more about it. 2017, we attended the USSA Summer Fest Event, and I immediately fell in love with everything about the organization.”

Noah, now 11 years old, expressed, “I was excited about my first deep-sea fishing trip. My captain was very nice and shared that his brother also had Spinal Bifida. We went to a secret spot where I caught flounder and croakers. My aunt caught a baby shark and a redfish. You can even touch the fish while they’re alive, but they have very sharp teeth.”

Noah recently went on his first hunting trip in North Carolina. “I went target practicing for the first time and then went deer hunting with my guide, Doug. I was happy to get my first doe, and I can’t wait to go hunting again.”

Noah is eagerly anticipating his role as a USSA Youth Leader, where he can share his fishing and hunting trip experiences with other children who have special needs.
