School Project Promotes Wheelchair Basketball


In the framework of the IWBF 2007 European Wheelchair Basketball Championships, to be held from 23 August to 2 September in Wetzlar, Germany, a school project entitled “Rollstuhlbasketball macht Schule – Check it out” has been initiated by the German Wheelchair Sports Federation (DRS) in co-operation with the German Basketball Federation (DBB).

The goal of this programme is to spread the word about Wheelchair Basketball and the European Championships at schools all over Germany. Furthermore, it wants to create awareness and understanding in schools about persons with a disability.

Several events have already been held within the project’s scope. On 19 April, a Wheelchair Basketball School Tournament with a total of 15 schools took place in Bad Arolsen, Germany. At a school in Lübbenau, Germany, German National Team Captain Lars Christink gave an introduction to the sport of Wheelchair Basketball to children from 4th and 5th grade.

The full school project includes a teacher’s manual, a brochure, the Wheelchair Basketball Player’s badge, as well as information regarding the competition and the hire-a-coach programme that sends skilled Wheelchair Basketball coaches and players straight into the sports classes to teach Wheelchair Basketball basics.
