Wheelchair basketball is an exciting sport of skill and teamwork, whether you're an athlete with an amputee, a spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, or another upper extremity disability; basketball is a great way to get exercise, have fun, and be challenged. The rules of wheelchair basketball are slightly modified to make the game more accessible from a seated position. To play the sport athletes must be able to push a manual wheelchair independently.
For more information about wheelchair basketball visit www.nwba.org.
Practices are held every Wednesday evening from 6:30 pm-9 pm (Sept.-May) at Carousel House (corner of Belmont Ave. and Avenue of the Republic, Phila., PA 19131).
