WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL REPRESENTATIVE PROGRAM
Hills Basketball Association (HBA) and the Sydney Metro Blues Wheelchair Basketball Club are pleased to announce their partnership for season 2019 and beyond.
The Blue Hornets, as they will be known in the HBA community, have begun training at the Hornets Training Centre (Dural) in preparation for the 2019 National Wheelchair Basketball League seasons in both the Men’s and Women’s competitions. The Blue Hornets also incorporate a junior development program, which has already seen two training camps held at HBA facilities with more scheduled later in the year.
“It’s an exciting time for the Sydney Metro Blues Wheelchair Basketball Club,” said Club founder Troy Sachs OAM. “We’ve been a successful club to date but I see this link with the Hills Hornets taking us to another level and ensuring the ongoing viability of our club well into the future.”
HBA CEO Steve Burke added, “This is partly about the Hornets ‘walking the talk’ as we often mention the inclusive nature of our organisation and it obviously presents some new opportunities for HBA. On top of this, I’m equally excited about just watching these guys get out on the floor and compete in their sport. Wheelchair basketball at this level is a great spectator sport as I’m sure people will see when the Blue Hornets play at home.”
