Biography

Maude Jacques discovered wheelchair basketball in 2001 thanks to the encouragement of her physiotherapist. A strong competitor and teammate, she felt at ease on the court and embraced both the team dynamic of the sport and the opportunity to constantly push her limits.

Jacques worked hard to steadily make a name for herself within the wheelchair basketball community. She first started playing with a mini-team in her home province of Quebec, before moving on to local club teams. She later made the jump to the provincial team and represented Quebec at several national competitions, including the 2011 Canada Games, at which the squad from ‘La Belle Province’ earned a third consecutive gold medal.

The countless hours of hard work paid off in 2011, when Jacques made her National Team debut. She first earned a roster spot on Canada’s first-ever Women’s U25 National Team, and followed up by cracking the Senior Women’s National Team roster in the same year.

The Sherbrooke, Que. native competed for Team Canada at the 2011 Women’s U25 World Championships in St. Catharines, Ont., and represented her country again at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. She competed at her first Paralympic Games in 2012.

Jacques captured the gold medal with Team Canada at the 2014 Women’s World Championship in Toronto, Ont.

She joined the University of Alabama women’s wheelchair basketball team in 2012.
