Alumnus to play point in elite wheelchair basketball program

UWindsor alumnus David Greig (BHK 2001, MHK 2006) is making his mark on the world of wheelchair basketball.

Greig has been appointed chair of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association’s High Performance Committee, responsible for developing a pipeline of athletes and coaches for the U.S. Paralympic team.

“A lot of the work I do is in policy and legal,” Greig said. “I got a really good foundation for that at the University of Windsor in the sports management program.”

Greig, who is originally from Wingham, Ontario, and lived in Windsor for 12 years before moving to the United States, is co-founder of ParaSport Spokane based in Spokane, Washington, and owner of TVH Mobility Group, a company that specializes in wheelchairs and other assistive devices for people with physical disabilities.

Before being appointed head of the High Performance Committee, Greig was instrumental in helping the NWBA’s coaches’ education committee design the American Development Model, a program to help athletes realize their potential in elite competition.

Darlene Hunter, president of the NWBA’s board of directors, said Greig’s knowledge, experience, and organizational skills are assets to the organization.

“I believe that David will bring fresh perspective and passion to supporting our national teams and development pipeline which is critical to achieving international competition success and awareness for our sport.”
