Inclusive Zone Basketball
Come and Try Session
7pm – 8pm
St Maurice’s High School Sports Complex
The Lady Rocks and Gladiator Rocks Basketball Club would like to invite young people along to a come and try session on 15th December to find out more about the sport.
Inclusive Zone Basketball is a 4 a-side game, developed to enable players who cannot participate in a full game of basketball to enjoy playing the game. The zones used enable players to be matched in their abilities within these zones.
The small-sided teams and adapted playing area enable girls and boys, both disabled and non-disabled, to participate in a fun game of basketball. The game takes into account principles of the ‘Social Model’ of disability, and lends itself to the modified and parallel sections of the ‘Inclusion Spectrum’
The sport is suitable for electric wheelchair players, manual wheelchair players and ambulant with physical impairments. Players with learning disabilities may require additional support from Leaders in recognising and playing within the designated zones.
