April has brought new challenges to me. At the beginning of the month I was invited to coach at the GB junior wheelchair basketball camp at stoke mandeville in Aylesbury. This camp was a selection camp for this summers European Championships. I really enjoyed working with the young talent that are emerging and the future stars of the country. I felt that I could have more of an influence and I think the guys appreciated my input and took on board what I was trying to teach them.
I hope to be involved in this summers tournament in some capacity.
The season is slowly finishing for our Newcastle Eagles team. Our D2 tram is taking part in the playoffs on the 12th may we're they will face Capital City who are aiming to get promotion to D1. Both
Eagles teams have had good season this term with our D1 team finishing 3rd in D1 and our D2 reaching the playoffs. I was also happy to take part in a local roadshow to celebrate 100 days to the
opening ceremony of the Olympic games. I encouraged the locals to try there hand at wheelchair basketball in Middlesbrough Town Square. A lot of people who tried it absolutely loved it and it was
hard to get them out of the chairs once they took part as the were hooked. I now look forward to a busy month in may as I have a lot of events planned and exciting times ahead.
