TY students participate in the SE Wheelchair basketball tournament

After completing an adapted sports module in PE, a group of our Transition Year students participated in the South East Wheelchair basketball tournament in Carraiganore. It was the first time the students had used a wheelchair and had to try to get used to using the chair and then try to play basketball. They started poorly in their first match and weren’t sure how best to work the court. However they improved game by game winning the next four games on the trot. They won their way through to the final against a strong Thomastown team but played great basketball by the time they reached the final. As a result of their progress through to the final, they have now qualified for the National finals which will take place in the National Basketball Arena in a couple of weeks.
