Get Involved

Wheelchair Basketball Canada is pleased to offer programs and services to people interested in getting involved in the game of wheelchair basketball. Individuals are encouraged and invited to become involved as players, coaches, officials, or volunteers.

Athletes

Wheelchair Basketball Canada is committed to providing opportunities for athletes with a disability to participate in a fully integrated sport program at the level they choose. We promote growth at the initiation, developmental, competitive and elite levels, and offers programs for youth, women, and men.

Wheelchair basketball is truly a sport for everyone!

We believe that inclusion is fundamental to achieving equity and access in sport and therefore we promote the “sport for all” concept, encouraging athletes with a disability and able-bodied athletes to compete together on the same basketball court within a classification system. This system allows for fair and equitable competition for all.
