Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan Wheelchair Basketball Coaches Sports Visitor Program

In coordination with U.S. Embassy Bishkek and Tashkent, the Sports Diplomacy Division will host a group of fourteen male and female wheelchair basketball coaches. 

The coaches will learn from U.S. experience, leadership, and best practice in Paralympic sport and how to best increase sports opportunities for athletes with disabilities.  Specifically, the group will learn about wheelchair basketball coaching theories and methodologies, implementation of competitions, and physical conditioning for athletes with disabilities.  The program will count on partnerships  and upon the coaches’ return home, both posts will support the implementation of participant action plans developed while on the program.
