A leading international wheelchair basketball coach will be delivering a practical coaching session at the University of Worcester next month.
Margaret Stran is the former Assistant Coach of the USA’s national wheelchair basketball team.
The session will take place at the University on Friday, March 1 at 2.15pm and is open to anyone to attend, free of charge. It is being hosted jointly by the University and the Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association.
The University of Worcester is the West Midlands regional centre for wheelchair basketball, taking the lead in hosting training and coaching sessions, running regional tournaments, raising awareness and disseminating good practice, and developing young players.
Mick Donovan, Head of the University’s Institute of Sport & Exercise Science, said: “The University has developed a great relationship with the Great Britain Wheelchair Basketball Association and we will be playing a major role in supporting them at all levels in the future.
“Our partnership with Alabama University provides the opportunity for Margaret to engage in our innovative work and it is appropriate that some of the country’s leading young players will be participating in the coaching session. I would encourage coaches at all levels of the game to attend and benefit from her expertise.”
