THE Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam (SOBD) was treated to a basketball clinic at Fitness Zone Kiulap recently.

Conducted by Shooting Stars and Fitness Zone, it is usually held on two Sundays of a month but the session on Saturday was to celebrate International Charity Day.

Shooting Stars coach Ken Han said that he aims to keep basketball fun, simple and adaptable for special athletes, hoping to boost even more participation in the coming months.

According to a press release, the Adaptive Fitness Programme will be launched on Sept 26 to mark a charitable programme conducted by Rachael Lee, Fitness Zone trainer and member of Shooting Star coaching team.

It will be by invitation only and will be a grassroots pilot scheme for SOBD members and athletes.

“I’m hoping for a good feedback and response from Adaptive Fitness Programme in order to extend this programme further to other non-profit organisations,” said Lee.

“The mission of this programme is to assist SOBD in recruiting potential special athletes with intellectual disabilities for desired sports participation in future international games,” she added.
