SPORTABLE SPOKES WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL

Join the Sportable's Youth Wheelchair Basketball Program!

 

Designed for kids ages 5 through high school with permanent lower limb impairments (e.g. Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury, Amputee, Cerebral Palsy, and others). Wheelchair basketball promotes teamwork, sportsmanship, and FUN! Not all players use wheelchairs for everyday mobility.

Players must be able to independently push themselves in a sports wheelchair.

Who: This program is for currently registered Sportable athletes only. Players must have a permanent physical disability which consistently reduces the function of the lower limbs to a degree where they cannot run, pivot or jump at the speed and with the control safety, stability and endurance required to play running basketball as an able bodied player. Not all players use wheelchairs for everyday mobility.
