Working with the Community

Essex Outlaws Wheelchair Basketball Club

Paralympic Sports & Disability Awareness

The outcomes we hope to achieve:

Create links between the community and Essex Outlaws Wheelchair Basketball Club.

Showcase the abilities of disabled athletes by introducing wheelchair basketball for all to experience and try for themselves.

Increase knowledge and understanding of disability.

Team work and experiencing something different as a group.

Information provided through experienced disabled coach allowing question and answer sessions to cover any aspects of Disabled life and sport.

Be inclusive to all

The Essex Outlaws can tailor the session around what you the customer want to cover on the day.

If you have a basketball court with baskets or if working with very young people we can provide low level baskets in a smaller hall or space within your school, college, university.

If you wish to experience wheelchair basketball or want to have a Questions & Answer type session both can easily be arranged.

We can hire a facility near you for the session if you do not have the space or facilities.

We have always been very well received and the days have always ended with smiles and new knowledge learnt.
