Hi, my name is Simran Bir and I am a
basketball player and future nursing student at Douglas College.My strength as a player is that, obviously my shooting ability. That’s why I got recruited in the first place and I pump up my team really well. the keys to having a good shot is that you have to have balance you have to have your feet set. Your eyes and elbows have to be lined up and you have to have follow through. Before game, I like to listen to my pre-game music playlist and I like to come in an hour before the rest of the girls do and work on my shot one of the best experiences I’ve had on being in this team is Provincials. We came in second in Provincials we upset the number one team in the tournament that was definitely a huge experience in my life.
My hearing impairment is that I have a mild to moderate disability I’ve had the hearing impairment since I was born so I’ve been living with it through with my entire life. I wear hearing aids in a classroom situation but when it comes onto the court, I don’t wear my hearing aids so it’s definitely a lot different. The biggest way that I deal with my hearing impairment is that I lip read and I’ve been thankful for the support and patience from my team and coaches. My long-term plans for basketball is that I’d keep playing while I’m studying at Douglas College and to hopefully play professionally after I graduate
