Oakville’s Rosie Long is one of 11 players invited to take part in Wheelchair Basketball Canada’s Development Camp being held March 21-25 at the WBC’s National Training Centre in Toronto.

Among the 11 athletes attending are Tokyo 2020 Paralympians Tamara Steeves (Mississauga), Sandrine Bérubé (Beauharnois, Que.), Tara Llanes (North Vancouver, B.C.), and Danielle Duplessis (Fredericton, N.B.).

“This camp is an important first step in the 2022 season and will be focused not only on-court development but also on continuing to grow as a program,” said Jeff Dunbrack, Wheelchair Basketball Canada High Performance Director.

The national senior women’s head coach is Marc Antoine Ducharme (Chambly, Que).

Other development athletes invited include Sydney Poapst (Edmonton, Alta.), Anikka Cassidy (Calgary, Alta.), Desiree Isaac-Pictou (Eel River Bar, N.B.),
