BC Wheelchair Basketball Society (BCWBS) provides various programs including women’s programs, from beginners to high performance athletes. Wheelchair basketball is a fully inclusive and integrated sport that individuals with physical disabilities and those who are able-bodied can enjoy together.
The WOW! Program is our Women’s Only Wheelchair Basketball program. We run monthly drop-in sessions in the lower mainland with a focus on strength & conditioning, skills, scrimmages and team building for women. It is open for ages 15 years and older. We also offer special weekend events, Victoria & Prince George locations in 2019, as additional playing, scrimmage and skills development events.
Although we have many active female members, the number is significantly lower than their male counterparts (less than 30% of all BCWBS members). Therefore, we established a goal last season to increase the number of female members including athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers to support more females to get active and stay active through our sport. We had some successes but still have a long way to go.
