Location: Glen Allen High School - 10700 Staples Mill Rd, Glen Allen, VA 23060

 

Who: 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. Players must be able to independently push themselves in a sports wheelchair, have the ability to follow age-appropriate instructions and the endurance to play for long hours.
