April 15, 2020 (Vancouver B.C.)  BC Wheelchair Basketball is pleased to announce the BCWBS Hall of Fame, Class of 2020. In the second annual Hall of Fame induction, we are proud to honour those in the On-Court and Builder categories.

Founded in 2019, BCWBS has inducted deserving individuals in the On-Court, Builder and Founding Member categories of the BCWBS Hall of Fame. Built around the desire to recognize, honour and pay tribute to individuals who have attained extraordinary achievements playing wheelchair basketball or to those individuals who have given distinguished service and who have made major contribution to the development and advancement of wheelchair basketball in BC.

The Class of 2020 honours and recognizes the legendary player, Jaimie Borisoff and Paralympic Hall of Fame coach, Tim Frick in the On-Court Category, as well as, Kathy Newman in the Builder Category.

Jaimie Borisoff was considered a leading member of the Canadian Men’s National Wheelchair Basketball Team from 1995 -2008 and the BC Provincial Team from 1991 – 2012.  As a starter, he led Canada and BC when they were at their best internationally and provincially. His athletic ability, intelligence, leadership skills and competitiveness set him apart and made him a leader on and off the court.

Tim Frick, renowned for his coaching strategies both on and off the court, including his focus on mental preparation and sport science, Frick’s tutelage solidified Team Canada as one of the most dominant teams in the history of Canadian amateur sports.

Kathy Newman, a thoroughly respected leader and administrator, Kathy’s influence on the development of Para sport hits all regions – local, provincial, national, and international. She has tirelessly worked to make sport more accessible for people with disabilities, and her involvement – whether it be developing or enhancing programming, hosting events, recruiting new athletes, advocating for more resources, or a number of other contributions – has had an immeasurable impact on the Paralympic Movement in Canada.
