Wheelchair Basketball

            Players are shown how to maneuver the wheelchair and drills to help improve one’s skill.

Indoor Wheelchair Soccer

            Similar to team handball, players will use a playground ball to attempt to score in a soccer goal.  Players will learn how the game is played, chair setup and how to move with the ball.

Wheelchair Volleyball

            An adaption of regular volleyball but played either with a wheelchair or in a chair.  It’s a new and growing sport which allows those who use a wheelchair an opportunity to play volleyball.  Rules are similar with a few adaptations.

Wheelchair Football

            Played with the idea of two hand touch, players must touch a part of the body or in case someone with a power wheelchair is playing suitable arrangements can be made.  The game is played by flag football rules but do not use flags as a means of tagging.

Power Wheelchair Soccer

            Players who use a power wheelchair have specially designed guards placed on the chair so they could “kick” a bigger soccer ball across the goal line.  Teams are made up of 4 players which include the goalie.

Smaller Adaptable Games

Lawn Darts

            Players can either toss the lawn dart or use some balls to toss or roll into the target.  Points are given if you make it in the target but no points are given if it is not made into the target.


            A game that uses ramps and chutes for those unable to toss the ball.  Players can either be in a wheelchair or not but must compete sitting down in a chair.
