The prep junior basketball team is designed for younger children ages six to twelve. Both beginner and advanced players are welcome. Learning how to play any type of adaptive sports is a challenge for any child. But wheelchair basketball is a perfect choice for the beginner interested in learning how to become more active and for kids who want to be part of a team.
Our varsity team will train athletes of all ages. This level also caters to both beginner and advanced players. Our goal is to teach disabled athletes how to adapt to their physical challenges in order to enjoy a challenging team sport.
We also offer a women’s basketball team that works with women ages fourteen to forty-five years old. This team will focus on teaching team members the same strategies that are taught in pro Paralympic sports.
Coed Teams for Adults
Our coed team is led by our adaptive sports coaches who have years of experience in this field. Each practice session is tailored for each player to learn the basics of wheelchair basketball while also discussing the challenges that every player will encounter on the court and how to avoid or overcome them.
