Les Bulldogs de Québec
Wheelchair basketball team
Welcome to the Quebec city Bulldogs web site. As you may already know, this site is rated among the top 100 best wheelchair basketball sites in the World !
This site is based on laziness : Put everything in one big page, don't bother with fancy pictures or graphics, edit with anything you got, avoid those complicated script things. So if you find a strange window on you're screen, be sure it's not coming from me. Actually, it's from Yahoo and it's supposed to behave well.
If you want to see a real nice web site (with style, content and everything) go visit the minis-bulldogs here.
This as nothing to do with basketball, but if like me you like rock music on the edge. go have a look at my friends The Surfin' Crooners.
If you want to practice your french skills, go here and have a talk with Eliza.
The Bulldogs got there name from the famous hockey team who won the Stanley cup for Québec around 1910. That was before the NHL and the Nordiques who move to Denver in order to win the cup again and make us all feel very bad and angry...
The wheelchair basketball Bulldogs team was put together in 1987 and was for the first five years associated with a corporation known as Adaptavie. The Bulldogs became an independent corporation in 1992.
Among the team achievements are : Provincial title in 1992 and 1996, Winner of a conference in the 1990's Spitfires tournament in Toronto, Winner of the Coupe Québec in 1992, 1993, 1995 and 1996. Winner of the Ligue de l'est final in 1994 and 1996. Division winner in the 2001 Défi Sportif final.
The Lynx was and still is the junior branch of the Bulldogs organization. Now just to confuse everybody (including me), the Bulldogs split into 2 equally talented teams for the 2001-2002 season (2A league). One of the team is still known as the Bulldogs and the other as the Lynx.
Partner of the team are : Ville de Québec, Association québécoise des sports en fauteuil roulant (AQSFR), Ministère des affaires municipales. The Bulldogs are always interested in any sponsorship or partnership offer. You can use the Email icon at the end of the page to get in touch with our financial department.
