Rosalie Lalonde was introduced to wheelchair basketball in 2011. At first glance she wanted nothing to do with the sport, but after some strong encouragement from her mother she stuck with it. Now she says wheelchair basketball is the one thing she cannot live without.
Lalonde worked diligently to fast track her climb up the wheelchair basketball ranks. She began playing in a mini program in Quebec before going on to compete for the provincial junior team and the women’s provincial team.
She earned roster spots on both the Senior Women’s National Team and Women’s U25 National Team in 2015.
