The Ontario Wheelchair Sports Association will be hosting a U16 ‘Mini’s’ Wheelchair Basketball Festival. This free event is open to athletes of all physical abilities, ages 16 and under, looking to try wheelchair basketball for the first time and/or improve their wheelchair basketball skills!
The day will include a combination of fun skills development activities & drills and some 3x3 game play facilitated by a team of OWSA club coaches.
Sport wheelchairs will be provided for athletes who do not already possess their own. Snacks will also be provided and all registered athletes will receive an OWSA t-shirt! For more information on the ‘Minis (U16) Festival’ please visit the OWSA events calendar
Athletes over the age of 16 are also allowed to participate in this event provided they are skill-appropriate athletes. This is a great opportunity to introduce first-timers to the sport (regardless of age or ability) as the day will be focused on fun and fundamentals.
