Are you ready for some wheelchair basketball? The MUSC Department of Physical Therapy students are putting a twist on the game. Shots With A Spin allows able-bodied players to experience playing basketball from a wheelchair. It’s exciting to see the players push their chairs down the court, dribble the ball, shoot and score!
For the second year, the tournament serves as a fundraiser for Achieving Wheelchair Equality, a nonprofit group that provides equal access to recreational activities for people with disabilities. The event will be held Saturday, June 15 at 9 a.m. at Deas Hall on The Citadel campus in Charleston.
In addition to watching the games, there will be an informational fair featuring many organizations from around the state that provide products and services to the disability community. An adaptive auto show will be on display showcasing a variety of hand-controlled driving systems. I will have my van in the show to show off the joystick driving controls.
