The Pacific Institute of Sports Excellence is currently home to the Canadian wheelchair rugby team, and will be until the end of the month.

The athletes are taking advantage of PISE’s up-to-date training facilities for a three week camp, to aid them in their campaign for the London 2012 Paralympics.

Canada won wheelchair rugby bronze at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics.
