Jacqueline Scoins-Cass founder and head coach of the Thames Valley Kings, a wheelchair basketball club in Berkshire has been short listed for The Vitality Grassroots Sportswoman of the Year Award (SWOTY).

Jacqui has worked so hard and sacrificed a lot to get us to where we are today. The whole team, players and families included are very proud of her commitment to the sport and wish her the very best of luck in the awards

Peter Scoins – Thames Valley Kings Marketing Manager

Having reported on the team for the past few years I can say that Jacqui really deserves the award. I have seen how both her and Peter have brought the team on with the dedication that they have both shown. Watching Jacqui interact with the team shows how much she cares and just how much their success means to her, I wish her all the best
