In coordination with U.S. Embassy Lusaka, and through its partnerships with the Zambian Basketball Federation and Paralympic Committee, the Sports Diplomacy Division will host a group of fourteen male and female Zambian wheelchair basketball coaches in Louisville, KY and Washington, D.C.
The coaches will gain a deeper understanding of the techniques and best practices for coaching wheelchair basketball. This program builds upon previous sports programming with underserved populations in Zambia and enhances Post’s continuing efforts to promote disability rights. The program will count on local partnerships and will take place in conjunction with the National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament in Louisville, KY. Upon the coaches’ return home, PAS Lusaka will partner with alumni to conduct a workshop to share knowledge with other coaches and athletes.
