SPOKANE, Wash. - Hoopfest is an event for everyone, no matter your age or ability.
Parasport Spokane works to make sure those with some limitations are able to safely and comfortably have a great time.
For four years they've been providing basketball chairs to children and adults who rely on them.
The specialized wheelchairs make it easier for athletes to turn.
And a fifth wheel in the back ensures that they do not tip over backwards.
Parasport has fourteen teams in Spokane, with athletes training in the wheelchairs twice a week.
This is six-year-old Jeff Coy's first Hoopfest.
But even though he's one of the younger players, he's a pro.
He's able to keep control of both the basketball chair and the ball.
"I usually do one hand and then I push too, at the same time, so when I'm getting close to shoot, and there's somebody around me, I just pass."
Parasport says wheelchair basketball is a great way for children with disabilities to see their potential.
