Weekly Update

Well, we had our Jazz Halftime Exhibition on Thursday. We had a great time and were very happy that the Weber State Wheelin’ Wildcats could come down and help us out. We were able to present Sam Blakely with his Gold Medal to a very enthusiastic crowd.

Friday night saw us at the National Recreation and Parks Association convention for their big ‘end of show’ party. We played a few scrimmages to show the large crowd what wheelchair basketball is all about. Then it was time for the participants to get in the chairs and give it a go. Everybody had a good time and the team was presented with a BRAND NEW SPORTS CHAIR from Invacare.

Our practices officially start Tuesday Oct 20. The Juniors and Beginning adults will start at 5:00pm while the Championship Division adults begin at 6:30pm. Practices are at Copperview Recreation Center in Midvale. The address is 8446 South Harrison Street (300 West). The public is welcome.

Our T-Shirt Fundraiser is in full swing. We are looking for sponsors, business or individual, that would like to help the team and get a little publicity as well. Here’s how it works. There are three levels of sponsorship. For $100, you get your name on the back of the T-Shirt. For $250, you get your name and logo. For $500, you get your name and logo on one of the sleeves. All proceeds go to the Neuroworx Adaptive Sports programs and the Wheelin’ Jazz. If you would like to learn more, respond to this message or email info@wheelinjazz.com. You can also begin your sponsorship online at tshirt.wheelinjazz.com.
