The weekend before Thanksgiving is upon us and with it three exciting tournaments are taking place in Wisconsin, Virginia and Utah.
The Intercollegiate Tournament at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater features top college teams including the Canadian Development team competing for the title going up against the defending National champs, led by head coach Jeremy “Opie” Lade. The Warhawks recently welcomed Christina Schwab as head coach of the women’s team. Christina was co-captain of the gold medal winning U.S. women’s team in Rio.
Below is a list of all the tournaments taking place across the country. If you are local to any of them, be sure to check out all the exciting wheelchair basketball action. Share your photos by tagging them #NWBA. They could be featured on the NWBA website and NWBA Facebook page.
Good luck to all the tournament directors, teams, coaches, officials and volunteers and best wishes for a successful weekend!
