Testimonial

  • Wheelchair Basketball is an aggressive, yet positive sport and is a remarkable way to acquire and make a habit of teamwork, communication, and sportsmanship. When I’m an adult, I hope to use my people skills and knowledge of the game to coach and encourage young athletes and people with disabilities.
