From BlazeSports Mon Nov 12 2012, 09:16:29

Funded by USAID, BlazeSports and the Jordan Paralympic Committee (JPC), hosted Disability Sport Education Courses in General Disability Sport, Athletics, Boccia, Wheelchair Basketball and Table Tennis. JPC Technical Director, Jasser Nuweiran remarked, "It's been 4 years since the JPC has hosted Paralympic trainings in Amman. We couldn't be any happier with [our] new agreement with BlazeSports. This week we saw the interest in Paralympic sport rise and we were able to train over 100 students, coaches, and administrators." BlazeSports would like to thank our partners at Scottish Disability Sports and the International Table Tennis Federation for their assistance with this project.
