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. The season runs from October to May.
Registration Cost: $75/per season
Our goal is to provide people of all ages with physical, cognitive, and any other disabilities with the opportunity to participate in programs and services that aim to build inclusion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
