– [Matt Lively] When it comes learning about wheelchair rugby, 18
players from around the country decided to learn from the best. The Ability360 Heat wheelchair rugby team, led by head coach Scott Hogsett, hosted a first of its
kind high-performance camp over the weekend. – Scott, he’s a really good coach, and, like, it really does help
to see the game a lot better, and I’m in a position now where I feel like I can go back to my team and hopefully help educate them as well on some of the stuff I’ve learned. – [Matt] The camp was aimed at teaching players of all skill levels. (crash) Offense, defense, and push training on and off the court
were the main focuses. Players were also advised by the strength and conditioning
specialists from Ability360. – They are, they’re better
than what I’ve learned from past coaches. Improvin’ my play stroke and proper technique of
pushing has just been huge. – [Matt] And one of the
highlights of the camp, using the state of the art Ability360 Sports and Fitness Center. – This place is extremely accessible. There’s not many like it. It’s something that I wish
every state had, at least this has affected
me, like, it’s awesome. It’s a privilege as well. – [Matt] And it sounds like these guys might be coming back for year two. – If you have any dreams or hopes of playing in D1 or even further, this camp would definitely
be huge for your game play, and just for your knowledge of rugby. – It’s gonna be, it’s gonna take your
game to the next level, and if you wanna get better at rugby, you should come out to it. – [Matt] For Ability360, I’m Matt Lively.
