Wheelchair Basketball Afternoon

Leave a comment

As part of Diversity week, Classes 3 & 4 enjoyed an afternoon of wheelchair basketball. We were lucky enough to have 2 members of the Sheffield Steelers Basketball Team come to visit us and share their knowledge and expertise about the sport. They brought along 10 wheelchairs for the children to try. The children had chance to move around the hall in the chairs, learn how to pass and dribble and then have a game of basketball! The children really enjoyed the experience and had such a rewarding afternoon. Many thanks to Maurice and Steve.

If you are interested in learning more skills or attending wheelchair basketball training (including for able bodied children) then the team run sessions on a Tuesday 4.30 to 6pm and on a Saturday morning 10am to 12pm. See link below.
