Cpl. Tisha Knickerbocker from Detachment Balboa (center) sprints toward the end of the court during a scrimmage match. The Marines participated in a scrimmage match against the Orlando Magic Wheels, a member of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association. The Marines played in the game as part of the Wounded Warrior Regiment Wheelchair Basketball Camp at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Marines and Marine veterans participating in the camp will enhance their skills in the areas of passing and shooting, as well as both defensive and offensive techniques. The Warrior Athlete Reconditioning Program (WAR-P) provides activities and opportunities for wounded, ill or injured Marines to train as athletes, while increasing their strength so they can continue with military service or develop healthy habits for life outside the service.
