The Costa Rican men’s national wheelchair basketball team has been in training for the 2014 Campeonato Centroamericano y del Caribe de Baloncesto sobre Sillas de Ruedas this week. Team members and officials at the camp include Jere Solano, Andres Carvajal Fournier, WeSs B Barrantes, Johel Alonso Araya Morales, Kevin Solano, Kenneth Gonzalez Rodriguez, Carlos Daney Castro Carvajal, Petter Hans Rojas Duran and Freddy Enriquez. Other people at the camp include Mauricio Gamez, who is an IWBF and IWBF Americas referee.
The national team selection process started on July 31. At the 2012 edition of the Campeonato Centroamericano y del Caribe competition, Costa Rica finished fourth behind winner Nicaragua, silver medalist Panama and bronze medalist Dominican Republic. They are certainly looking to improve on their placement.
Other teams from the region are also in training. The national federation in Puerto Rico has training every Wednesday with the goal of preparing for the competition on the road to qualifying for the Para American Games.
