  • Wheelchair Basketball a Hit

    A group of young people gave wheelchair basketball the full court press at Easter Seals House yesterday.

    Roughly a dozen people had fun learning how to shoot, pass, and dribble while navigating the gym on wheels.

    17-year-old Nicholas Arnold was on hand to give newcomers some pointers. He has been playing for nine years and says the game has enriched his life.

    Arnold says he has made many friends and had excellent opportunities after joining the sport. He values the programs offered by Easter Seals for persons with disabilities and praises the benefits.

    First-time player Samantha Jenkins says it’s a lot harder than it looks.

    She admits it was tricky but says participating in the event has given her a new respect for people who use wheelchairs.
