“As proud sponsor of the Canadian Women’s National Wheelchair Basketball Team, Hooper Law shares the team’s passion and drive to win”, says Rob Hooper, “but most importantly, our new relationship will give us even better insights and methods to help clients deal with and adjust to physical or emotional adversity as a result of their injury. These athletes offer real life inspiration because they’ve shown it is possible to overcome the challenges they’ve faced, and to excel at the highest levels”.
“Wheelchair Basketball Canada believes in the power of sport to improve people’s lives and we are thrilled to work with 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 Hooper Law will be an important partner in supporting Team Canada as our women strive for the podium in 2016 and beyond.”
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.
According to Rob Hooper who is also head coach for the Redeemer University Women’s Basketball team, “I can only begin to appreciate the intense focus and training the athletes are undergoing in preparation for the upcoming Paralympic Games. We are cheering them on as they are getting ready, and wish them every success in their drive to win Gold for Canada.”
