Members from the NY Rolling Knicks Division 3 Wheelchair Basketball Team, Edy Lopez and Yuskue Makino and tri-athlete, Ricardo Corral, put on a Wheelchair Basketball Demonstration for the 8th grade students at the Village Community School in Manhattan NY on Friday May 6, 2011.  After, some introductions and a run through of Wheelchair Basketball fundamentals, passing, dribbling and shooting, the 35 students got a chance to try out the adaptive sports wheelchairs and pushed hard for 2 hours.  This was the first time the Wheelchair Sports Federation had a chance to speak with students of The Village Community School and we look forward to seeing a new class of eager to learn 8th graders next year.
