Rollers Brad Ness and Ben Ettridge To Lead Free Clinic

Australian Rollers captain Brad Ness and head coach Ben Ettridge, will headline the upcoming “Get Involved” Wheelchair Basketball Clinic in conjunction with the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation and the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC).

The free clinic will take place on Saturday 28th February at the Cockburn Basketball Stadium on Starling Street, Hamilton Hill.

Guided by the APC and funded by the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation, the Get Involved initiative has been launched throughout the nation, with aims to encourage young Australians with a disability to participate in Para-sports programs.

The event will be the fourth time that Basketball Australia has participated in the Get Involved initiative, having previously run clinics at Sydney University Sport, during the WNWBL Finals series in Brisbane and at the most recent clinic in Geelong, VIC.

The recent clinic in Geelong was headlined by Gliders coach Tom Kyle, who explained that “Get Involved is an initiative from the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation at the APC to try and break down the barriers and get people with disabilities involved with sport."

The upcoming clinic will include free games and allow young locals with a disability to learn the basic skills of wheelchair basketball in a fun environment.
