From the YMCA website: RAID basketball is a program for people with an intellectual disability. It provides participants with an opportunity to be part of a sporting team and to enjoy not only the game itself but the friendship, pride, confidence & mateship that come from being part of a team.
From the YMCA website: Once a week on a Wednesday night around 30 RAID participants and 6 -10 volunteers from Radford College turn up to play basketball in the Radford College gym. There are two games played, beginners and intermediate, and participants are placed into the game that best suits their level of skill and pace. The game is played with modified rules to include all players in a team. The Radford student volunteers participate in the games, passing the ball around, coaching, and partnering up with participants who need that little extra encouragement, pep talking and generally fostering a positive team spirit and ensuring each RAID player has equal participation.
