Rebound WA offers schools and tertiary groups a fun and interactive disability education experience called Wheel LIFE.
Wheel LIFE is designed to motivate and educate students by giving them a practical understanding of what it is like to live with physical disability. In addition to gaining a more inclusive outlook, we also show how being active leads to a healthier life.
The program is extremely flexible and can be adapted to suit your needs. A standard Wheel LIFE program will provide:
- an introductory talk by a wheelchair athlete;
- time to learn the basic skills needed to play wheelchair basketball; and
- a supervised game of wheelchair basketball.
The Wheel LIFE program is suitable for students of all ages including primary and secondary age students. The program is also great for University and TAFE students.
Wheel LIFE can be conducted at the Herb Graham Centre in Mirrabooka, where we have fantastic facilities including wheelchair accessible toilets, showering facilities, a cafe, conference rooms and elevated seating. Alternatively we can bring the program to you – provided you have a suitable playing surface.
For more information download the Wheel LIFE for Schools brochure. After experiencing Wheel LIFE, some groups have opted to take on the Wheelchair Challenge to further test themselves.
