French Wheelchair Basketball Team Holding Camp at Edinboro


Mackall, Dave, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The French are coming! The French are coming!

In a friendly invasion of sorts, the French Men's National Wheelchair Basketball Team will hold a week of training camp at Edinboro University from Feb. 1-7.

The French team will be training with the Edinboro wheelchair basketball team, whose coach, Jim Glatch, led the United States to the U23 World Championship in 2009 in Paris.

Glatch is scheduled to coach the U.S. team at the 2010 IWBF World Championships in Birmingham, England, this summer.

"The French really liked the way we played the game and were very interested in training with us," Glatch said. "They qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1994 and feel this will be a valuable training experience. It's a tremendous opportunity for our team to work out with them, and I'm honored that they would want to train with us."

While visiting Edinboro, Glatch said French team members will be asked to take part in several other outside functions, including attending an NBA game in Cleveland.

From Feb. 5-7, Edinboro will play host to an eight-team tournament at McComb Fieldhouse and the Zafirovski Sports Dome on campus. In addition, the French team will play exhibition games against Alabama, Illinois and Wisconsin-Whitewater.
