IBP

The Inclusive Basketball Program (IBP) is a basketball competition that provides playing opportunities for players with an intellectual disability or integration difficulty. 

The Pasadena Sports Centre is home to one of the most successful IBP competitions in the state. Offering two divisions, division 1 and division 2, this program caters for the beginner through to top level Ivor Burge state players.  The popularity of the IBP competition has grown so much in its 10 year history that in 2010 the division 1 program has had to expand to 6 teams.

With the wide range of abilities in our members we need to ensure that all of our members are constantly challenged and supported according to their different needs. Therefore they are placed in particular teams to provide a balanced competition, to promote personal basketball skills development, leadership skills and social skills.
