BASKETBALL

Basketball is the most popular sport, the day after the season is over, someone asks when Basketball will start.  Special Olympics Toledo Public 'T-Rockets' have won 2 State Championships in their division.  The past 5 years Coaches John Shaffer and Marcia Quinn along with several different assistant coaches have taught about 25-35 athletes each year the skills needed to compete on the School Age team or in the Individual Skill Competition.  The teams learn by competing against other SO teams.  Like all OHSAA teams they must win at the Area & Sectional in order to compete at the State Special Olympics tournaments.  The difference in competitions is that athletes are awarded for their Individual Skills in BISC.  For the last 5 years the Area 4 BISC has been hosted by SOTP at Start HS.
