ParaQuad Tasmania offers the Wheelchair Sports in Schools program across the state, which gives students in grades 7-12, the opportunity to participate in Wheelchair Basketball or Wheelchair Australian Rules Football. The program is designed to give students the opportunity to view life from a different perspective and try a different sport with a very different set of skills from the ones they are used to. Students will discover how difficult playing sport in a wheelchair is – but they’ll take on the challenge.
The session goes for around 1 hour and involves wheelchair skills such as pushing and turning the wheelchair in a safe manner, games skills and finally the opportunity to participate in a game. The sessions are run by one of ParaQuad Tasmania’s elite athletes who will finish of the session with a short talk about what life in a wheelchair is really like.
ParaQuad Tasmania supply all wheelchairs and equipment for the Wheelchair Sports in Schools Program.
