BRITISH WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL’S INSPIRE A GENERATION PROGRAMME’S PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP NEW FUN AND RECREATIONAL LOCAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR INDIVIDUALS TO ENGAGE WITH WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL, ENSURING INCREASED LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION AND TO SUSTAIN SPORT, PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE IN THE LONGER-TERM.
The initiative is vital in helping support disabled participants find or return to physical activity, many of whom have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and WheelPower are delighted to be partnering with British Wheelchair Basketball on the delivery of this exciting programme. Sign up for a 6 week course today and discover what this fantastic sport has to offer.
The Inspire A Generation programme isn’t just for the players, you can also get involved by becoming a Local Activator and support the growth of the sport in your area.
“It is our ambition to ensure disabled people have opportunities to play sport and lead healthy active lives.Wheelchair basketball is accessible to all, regardless of age or ability and we are delighted to be working with British Wheelchair Basketball on the delivery of the Inspire a Generation programme. It’s been a very challenging year for disabled people but we know that playing sport can enrich lives and we look forward to supporting this exciting programme and linking it to our work with newly paralysed men and women and young disabled people.” – Martin McElhatton, Chief Executive at WheelPower.
