Wheelchair Athletics: Is it for you?

Before answering that question, there is one important thing you need to know first. You do NOT have to be confined to a wheelchair! A person can participate in wheelchair athletics as long as they have a permanent physical disability that limits their participation in able-bodied sports. They may have an amputation, have a significant orthopedic problem, or have some disease or disability (such as spina bifida or CP) that restricts their movement. In most cases, no disability is too severe to participate or be involved in some way. Wheelchair athletics can be fast paced, challenging, and competitive, but also recreational. It provides an opportunity to exercise, make new friends, develop social and teamwork skills, increase confidence, and to have fun!
