“Wheelchair Basketball Canada believes in the power of sport to improve people’s lives and we are thrilled to work with Grosso Hooper Law, a dedicated firm that shares that belief,” said Executive Director Wendy Gittens. “Our women’s national team program is unwavering in its pursuit of athletic excellence and Grosso Hooper Law is an important partner in supporting Team Canada as our women continue to strive for the podium.”
The Canadian Women’s National Team is amongst the most successful teams in the entire history of Canadian amateur sports and a force to be reckoned with on the international wheelchair basketball stage. The Canadian women are three-time Paralympic champions and have reached the podium at seven consecutive world championships since the inaugural event in 1990, which includes capturing the world title on home soil in 2014.
