Board of Directors
Chair of the Board - Bo Hedges
Bo Hedges began playing wheelchair basketball in 1995 by starting a team in Fort St. John. Bo moved to Prince George in 1998 to further his education at the University of Northern BC and continued playing there with the PG Titians, making the senior men’s provincial team in 1999. He participated on the National Junior men’s team in 1997 and 2001, received his Business Marketing Degree from UNBC in 2004, and then moved to Vancouver in 2006 seeking a better training setting. The move proved fruitful, as he made the senior national team in 2007, and was a silver medallist in the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and a gold at the London 2012 games. In preparation for the London 2012 games Bo moved to Alabama to complete a Masters degree in Sport Management while training and playing with Crimson Tide.
Vice Chair - Bryan Shore
Riley Martin - Treasurer
Brad Hagkull- Secretary
Living proof that tall men should not wear plaid, Brad first got involved in wheelchair basketball when his 6-year old son said, "Daddy, I want to do that". He has been the head coach of the Chilliwack Cheetahs program in the Fraser Valley since then and loves seeing the smiles when kids first try the sport. He is excited to develop our sport at the community and school levels and dreams of the day when every student in B.C. can get the opportunity to experience Wheelchair Basketball before graduation. An Elementary school teacher, accordian enthusiast and former varsity athlete, Brad's main job these days is to follow his kids around the house and turn off lights.
