School & Community Participation Program

Bring Wheelchair Basketball To Your School Or Program!

If you have a student with a physical disability in your school or community program you can provide that individual as well as their peers with a valuable education and awareness experience. Wheelchair Basketball can be a catalyst for change in your school or community and it is a fun and memorable experience that everyone can enjoy.

Program Description

Sport wheelchairs used for wheelchair basketball are available for rental to your school or community program for use in daily physical education classes, afterschool programs, or special events in the Greater Vancouver area. In addition a BCWBS coach or athlete can come to your program to introduce the sport, and activity ideas to your group.

Teachers or Program Leaders may find this is a great way to offer inclusive programming for students with physical disabilities in your program. This physical activity opportunity is best suited for individuals with good upper body mobility (to allow for catching and passing) and use of a manual chair to ensure a positive sport experience.
