Wheelchair Basketball Coach Symposium

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.
