What is the Wheelchair Classic? This event is a basketball Charity event founded by Harry “Hank” Carter, as part of Wheelchair Charities, Inc. This is a charity that started in 1973, with the first high school games beginning in 1974 where the top High school seniors and rising Juniors would compete to raise money to support those who are disabled & and wheelchair-bound. These games contestants consisted of all the top players from Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, & the Bronx. but last year 2016 for the first time Long Island was invited to participate thanks to the efforts of Gary Charles of the Fab 48, and Tom Feminella of Upper Room Christian school who advocated on behalf of Long Island and lead the Team LI in an upset over Team Queens in their debut in this event.
Well it’s that time again and Team Li will be hosting their tryouts for the Long Island representatives on Thursday April 6th at6:30pm at St Mary’s High School. There is No tryout fee. Just bring your game and be ready to leave it on the floor because ONLYthe BEST will be chosen to represent “Strong Island” in this prestigious and charitable event.
