Wheelchair Basketball Canada's High Performance Program works in close partnerships with [Canadian Sport Centres] to ensure our athletes are given every opportunity to excel at an elite level.
Through the strong commitment and dedication of the players, coaches, support staff and volunteers across Canada, has emerged as the pre-eminent model for success. Both the Women's and Men's National Team programs have garnered international acclaim, not only for their consistent achievements reaching the podium in international competitions, but also for their ongoing efforts to continually define and redefine the boundaries of high performance as it relates to wheelchair basketball.
Canada is recognized as an international leader and Canadian wheelchair basketball has become synonymous with the wealth of world-class individuals that remain dedicated to the growth and development of the game within Canada and abroad.
As a result the Canadian Men's and Women's Teams have earned a distinguished reputation as one of the most prolific offensive and astute defensive teams in the world.
The National Men's, Women's and Junior team athlete pools, are made up of a group of athletes who have been identified as the top ranked elite wheelchair basketball athletes in Canada. These selected elite athletes become part of the Wheelchair Basketball Canada national program which includes specialized coaching, intensive training and increased competitive opportunities, with the potential to participate in international competitions.
