SBCC Indoor Wheelchair Basketball celebrates First Anniversary

In February of 2019, wheelchair basketball at St. Benedict Community Center (SBCC) got off to a great start. “I will never forget that night,” said Sister Dianne Sabol, SBCC Director. “It was a dream come true.”

Now, one year later, the Adapted Sports Program celebrates its first anniversary. Wheelchair basketball is played by people with different levels of physical challenges that prevent running, jumping and pivoting. The indoor wheelchair basketball available at SBCC promotes healthy competition, constructive time use, positive social interactions and valuable life skills. Sister Dianne added: “Recreation is essential for everyone. My hope is that this program will continue to grow. It has been really special for all who are involved.”
