Garrett Ostepchuk competed at his first Paralympic Games at Tokyo 2020 and followed with a second world championships appearance in 2023.

He made his wheelchair basketball debut at the age of seven following an introduction to the sport through a demonstration at his school. The passionate young athlete quickly embraced the sport and has worked tirelessly to refine his skills on the court.

The native of Regina, Saskatchewan has been a mainstay on his provincial team for a number of years and has already helped Team Saskatchewan to a number of podium finishes at junior national championships. 

Ostepchuk earned a roster spot on the Men’s U23 National Team and the Senior Men’s National Team in 2017. He considers the accomplishment to be an amazing opportunity to play at a high level and compete against the top athletes from around the world.
