By all accounts, the Warriors are a powerhouse. Currently ranked 3rd in the nation, this team has their eyes firmly fixed on bringing home the national title. It’s all about bragging rights, really – as the Windy City Warriors head into this season, hoping to clinch their 9th IHSA Wheelchair Basketball Championship.
The Windy City Warriors is the premier junior wheelchair basketball team in DuPage, composed of top athletes from several middle schools and high schools from throughout the county. The Warriors are a travel team, competing recently in Minnesota and Kansas. But coming up this month, the team will be hosting a fast-paced, action packed wheelchair basketball tournament.
If you’ve never seen a wheelchair basketball game or any adapted sport before, this tournament is a great opportunity to witness some talented young athletes at their best. Teams from around the Midwest will be rolling into Fountain View Recreation Center, 910 N. Gary Avenue in Carol Stream on February 1st and 2nd. The competition on the court is certain to be intense – showing athleticism, power, and skill. All are welcome and admission is free.
