IWA launch new TY championships
IRISH Wheelchair Association (IWA) Louth has recently launched the first ‘All-Ireland TY Wheelchair Basketball Championships’ which will take place throughout 2017/18.
The All-Ireland TY Wheelchair Basketball Championships allows TY students across Ireland to engage in a disability awareness progamme and also experience a Paralympic sport, immersing TY students in a fast paced, edge of your seat game, providing an authentic first hand inclusive experience of this incredible game and wheelchair sports.
IWA is Ireland’s leading representative organisation and service providers for people with physical disabilities.
IWA has two busy Community Centres located in Ardee and Drogheda.
The centres provide a range of essential services to local people with disabilities. Each year IWA Louth liaises with local schools and TY students from Louth for its national fundraising campaign ‘Angels’. Students volunteer during November, to support their local IWA Centre to sell a range of Angels products in order to raise essential funds for IWA services, supports and activities including wheelchair and para-sports.
For further information about the ‘All-Ireland TY Wheelchair Basketball Championships’ or to register your school please visit www.iwa.ie/basketball or contact Charlene Hurley, IWA National Fundraising Manager on 087 2600802 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Schools must be registered by Friday, 27th October 2017.
