This program is open to adults ages 18+ with a permanent lower limb disability (i.e. Spinal Cord Injury, Spina Bifida, Amputation, Cerebral Palsy, etc.).  Not all players use wheelchairs for everyday mobility! 
 
This sport is played in sports wheelchairs, and athletes must be able to maneuver their chairs independently.  Sportable owns sports wheelchairs that athletes who are new to the sport can use at practices to begin their development within the sport.
 
This program will provide opportunities for athletes to work on their skills, strength, and endurance during what is considered the wheelchair basketball off-season. 
 
This program is primarily for athletes who:
  • Already playing on a Sportable team
  • Have an interest in playing wheelchair basketball competitively
