In an exciting step forward for North Wales Crusaders with the help of Mike Hayes of Rhyl Raptors wheelchair Basketball and North Wales Wheelchair Basketball tonight we held our very first Wheelchair basketball session. The session saw 10 of our North Wales Crusaders take to the court and for many of them have their first ever taste of basketball.
The gruelling session involved various drills and ended with a tough match. Mike was very impressed with the ability of all the players and is looking forward to our next session.
The aim of the club is to introduce this sport with the hope of entering our own team into the Wheelchair Basketball North Wales league in the future and also to train our own coaches.
The next session is scheduled for Friday 13th April from 6 till 8pm
Photographs of the session are on the Basketball page
Yesterday saw the Plate cup draw for this year see the Crusaders pitted against Hull FC. The fixture will see Crusaders travel to Hull for the quarter Finals, this will be the second time Crusaders will face Hull Fc in a cup tournament as last year saw them pitted against each other at Brymbo where the Crusaders produced a steller performance that saw them beat Hull Fc 84 - 44.
Head coach Stephen Jones has said we have a very promising squad of both seasoned and new players for this year and there is no reason for us not to emulate last years victory
