12 athletes are on the roster as the team looks to build towards a strong showing at the 2015 Parapan American Games in Toronto and the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.
In a release, Head Coach Jerry Tonello says, “With the departure of some of our veterans comes the opportunity for new blood and energy to enter our program at the elite level. The team is now compromised of an even combination of new and veteran players and this will be an excellent mix for mentorship development and skill transference within the team. The core values of our team still remain with the emphasis on effort and the will to compete.”
The team was chosen after the selection camp at the University of Nevada. The camp featured 19 wheelchair basketball athletes.
