For the first time in nine years, the Manitoba wheelchair basketball program is sending a team to nationals. The Canadian Wheelchair Basketball League National Championships take place  April 22-24, 2016 in Kamloops, BC.
Wheelchair basketball athletes are classified by Wheelchair Basketball Canada and assigned a point between 1.0 and 4.5. The total points on the court at one time cannot exceed 15, which means there must always be a mix of able-bodied and disabled players.

The team is always seeking out new members to develop and train with including those recently recovered / recovering from injury / surgery and as result, can no longer participate at a high level and are still wanting a competitive experience and new challenge.

Eleven athletes from Manitoba are headed to Kamloops for nationals. Their http://gofundme.com/mtqqh8f6 page is raising money for the cost of travel.
