It may be a shot with a slim chance of even hitting the rim, but the Pilipinas Warriors are setting their sights on a Paralympics stint.

And decorated Canadian coach Mike Frogley is helping the national wheelchair basketball team with a four-day clinic that kicked off Wednesday.


“Success cannot be done overnight. It’s a process that we have to carefully take,” said Frogley, who will spearhead the training sessions with the Pilipinas Warriors along with the Canadian wheelchair national basketball team at Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila.

Frogley steered Canada to back-to-back gold medals in the 2000 (Sydney) and 2004 (Athens) Paralympics and a silver finish in the 2008 Beijing Games.

“It can be done, but it requires tons of hard work,” said Frogley.
