On Saturday February 23rd, 2019, the Wheelchair Sports Federation hosted a Jr NBA Skills Challenge at the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale NY.  With the help of their Sports Management Club and the players from the Brooklyn Nets and Nassau Kings Wheelchair Basketball Teams, the juniors from the NY Fury competed against the clock to see who would have the highest score.  While being timed for one minute, the players had to dribble through cones and then make shots at designated spots for points.

  

 For the Under 11 years old category - Max Wong won with a total of 12 points. 

 For the Under 13 years old category - Sebastian Milan won with a total of 5 points

 

Congratulations to the winners and the other 5 who came out to compete and play.  They also had time to show the college students how to play with a little exhibition.  Next up for the winners is seeing if they qualify to compete in the National Championship Jr NBA Skills Challenge in NYC in July 2019.  Good luck to the NY Fury Wheelchair Basketball Team who will be competing in Chicago IL in March 2019 for the Junior Wheelchair Basketball National Championships too.
