Wheelchair Basketball

774A2043edit

Basketball Victoria is the custodian for wheelchair basketball in Victoria and sees this program as a natural extension of our inclusion philosophy by developing and supporting people with impairment.

We’ve developed numerous entry levels, strategies and clear, integrated pathways that engage and develop players, coaches, officials, administrators and volunteers across the wheelchair basketball system.

 

Opportunities are available for all people to engage with this part of our sport particularly those with:

  • childhood-onset physical disabilities
  • spinal cord injury (SCI)
  • secondary physical disabilities
  • physical impairment that is not traditionally seen as ‘disabled’
    (e.g. chronic conditions that prevent people from participating
    in their chosen sport).
