Aaron Moseley-Williams of Winnipeg has been selected to Canada's 2013 senior men's wheelchair basketball team.
Moseley-Williams was one of just three new players named on Wednesday to the 12-member men's national team following a one-week selection camp of 22 men in Las Vegas. The men's team includes nine returning players from the London 2012 Paralympic gold medal winning men’s team.
The senior men's team and 12-member senior women's team, selected at the same training camp, will represent Canada at international events this year.
"The three new players give our senior team an injection of youth and top-end speed, and I'm looking forward to working them into the various lineup combinations," said Jerry Tonello, Team Canada men's head coach, said in a press release.
The women's team, which returned 10 players, is coached by Bill Johnson of Winnipeg.
"Our team is a fast, high-energy group and I’m looking forward to watching our younger players develop and learn from the dedication and motivation of our veterans," said Bill Johnson in a statement.
