Year 9 play wheelchair basketball

A group of Year 9 students recently experienced playing wheelchair basketball.

Students played a game of basketball alongside Brandon of Wheelchair Sports NSW and left the experience feeling inspired to engage with a wider range of wheelchair sports.

“After a quick conversation discussing the logistics of moving around in a wheelchair and everyday life in a wheelchair, we began a very fast-paced game of wheelchair basketball and even experimented with a few tricks,” said IGS student Francesca.

“This was an experience that will be long remembered by the current Year 9 cohort. Experiencing what it is like to play a sport in a wheelchair has definitely expanded our awareness, and will hopefully inspire us to engage with a wider range of wheelchair sports.”
