Wheelchair Basketball Coach Symposium

Wheelchair Basketball Coach Symposium

September 16, 2017

The purpose of the day is really to get everyone in one room to foster discussion. The OWSA wants to celebrate the successes of clubs/programs across Ontario and identify gaps/areas of improvement. We also want to openly discuss matters related to both competitive and recreational programming so that we can continue creating opportunities that benefit the community as a whole.

Open to 2 coaches and/or representatives (ie. athletes, parents, board members, volunteers) from all wheelchair basketball clubs and programs across Ontario.

Date: Saturday, September 16, 2017
