Wewillrollyou – Wheelchairbasketball doing school at schools in Munich
Inclusion is a big subject in Europe. Nevertheless, many state institutions do not really know how to behave, so inclusion becomes a “natural way” to live, learn and work.
In team sports everybody brings his advantages to his group and has to be part of it, no matter what. We bring these two things together to make the inclusive way of school live as easy as being part of a team.
The idea behind the project is to bring children with and without disabilities to play basketball together.
In wheelchairbasketball everybody is sitting on the same level, with the same initial situation and facing the same challenges. No matter which background, gender oder disability every child has to learn the same communication and the behaving rules on the court.
2019-2020 we have the opportunity to bring this idea of communication, behavior and attitude on one level to your school, to show the pupils and interested children how easy and fun live can be in an inclusive society.
This is how it´s work:
That’s what the participants say:
- “Super, this is the real inclusion!” (Ludwig, 14, wheelchair bound)
- “You can hardly get this sport experience in the daily routine, because you need a wheelchair. The play was great!” (Tini, 18)
- “It was cool to spin in a wheelchair. Even while dribbling”.(Erik 11)
On 24 und 25 of august the Iguanas hosted a Wheelchairbasketball Clash with the participation of the national teams from Russia, Austria and Switzerland. Wewillrollyou Project invited all children and young people to try this amazing team sport and participate in a clash with the professional players.
