Wheelchair Basketball

Fast-Paced Competition

If ever there was a sport that could shatter the stereotype of the delicate person in a wheelchair, it is Wheelchair Basketball. Wheelchair Basketball offers an opportunity for people of all abilities to play together.

Easter Seals NL’s Wheelchair Basketball Program focuses on grassroots entry-level development right through to the transitions to competitive play. Our weekly program is broken into two sessions. The first session focuses on our younger players, who are new to the sport to learn the fundamentals. Our second session engages our athletes who are looking to improve and master their skills while staying active.

Easter Seals NL’s Wheelchair Basketball program allows players to develop their skills with the assistance of their fellow players and volunteers.  All players are fitted with a wheelchair they can use throughout the season.

Our Wheelchair Basketball Program is delivered weekly on Tuesday evenings at our Easter Seals NL Building.

  • Stories of Success

“When my son was younger he and his friends used to play all the time. As his friends grew up they started to play stand-up sports and he began to feel left out. This all changed when he found Easter Seals. Here he feels included with life-long friends. I can’t describe the pride I feel when I see him laughing at wheelchair basketball.”
