Program details

How does your school get involved?

The iCan program is a six to eight week program which introduces athletes with intellectual disabilities to the game of basketball through drills and games. Basketball Queensland supply coaches which have experience working with athletes of all abilities and breakdown basketball concepts through fun games.

After the completion of the program at the school BQ host a inter-school competition where schools that participated in the program can come together for a skills session and games.
