We are really happy to be involved in this incredible Inclusive Basketball project.
In September 2021, Rockets GM Robert Palmer attended the partners meeting in Alicante along with participating organisations from HLA Alicante, Bulgarian Special Olympics Consortium and Wetterbygden Basketball from Huskvarna in Sweden.
The initiative will focus on improving basketball experiences for disabled participants. This will include an extensive schools programme, international exchanges and camps/ tournaments with the project partners.
Rockets MD Rob Palmer is excited by the project, “Having been fortunate to be involved in several international exchange programmes, they are always inspirational experiences for those taking part.
We work hard to give the young people of Birmingham different types of opportunities and this particular development will provide diverse and exciting situations for the participants.
We are thrilled to be involved in this project with our close friends and partners in Spain and look forward to forming new relationships with those in Sweden and Bulgaria too.”
The Erasmus project activity will see Rockets deliver free sessions in 30 schools during 2021/22. The planned programme of delivery is shown below:
