In honour of National Coaches Week, BC Wheelchair Basketball Society is excited to announce new changes to our coaching staff. Congratulations to our new provincial coach, Simon Cass, who has been promoted from his previous role as the regional coach.  Makiko Harada will take on the regional coaching duties in addition to her position as our Manager of Program Development.

BCWBS is also thrilled to announce that Marni Abbott-Peter, our previous provincial coach, will be staying on as the Director of Let’s Play.
