In 2009, in an effort to promote
physical exercise, healthy dieting, and to fight against childhood/youth
obesity IDM started a physical training and basketball program. The IDM Panthers use the sport of basketball to promote positive pro-social
ties, provide physical exercise and strength training, an opportunity to play
basketball on a competitive level, and more importantly, increase our
participant’s level of self-worth. Through on-court sessions we focus on discipline and teaching our
participants how to become productive members of society outside of the gym.
