We have out grown our indoor training site!
We are in dire need training space for our strength and conditioning program as well as storage space for our equipment. Ideally a site that is 2,500-5,000 square feet.
Ongoing Equipment Needs
- tires -for basketball and racing wheelchairs
- throwing implements
- strength & conditioning weights, bands and gear
Equipment trailer & vehicle
As our program quickly grows, we are seeing a need for a second trailer and a vehicle to tow it to competitions, events and practices.
- Trailer needs: an enclosed 10-12′ travel trailer to transport our equipment. These trailers cost between $2,000 and $3,000.
- An 8-15 passenger vehicle capable of pulling at 12′ trailer to tournament in Seattle and Portland as well as hauling gear at least 4 days a week to ongoing practices.
Wheelchair racing chairs
Racing chairs can cost between $2,500 and $4,000 depending on athlete needs and chair design. It is anticipated that the program will need at least 5 new racing chairs for the 2015 season.
Throwing frames & platforms
Throwing frames are used by athletes to throw shot put, discus, javelin and the club. Frames are strapped or “tied down” to the platform so that the chair does not move while the athlete throw. Frames typically cost $700-$1,000 and it costs about $400 to build a platform.
Wheelchair basketball chairs
We are currently in need for a minimum of 5 new basketball chairs to service the need of our rapidly growing program. On average a basketball chair will cost $2,500.
