In this video I want to about Wheelchair basketball. An overview of the sport.

Who can play?

Anyone with a physical impairment can participate. Then depending on your impairment, you are put into a class system.


Wheelchair basketball has a classification point system. As previously stated, depending on your disability you are classed accordingly. The scale is from 1-4.5. With half points in between. 4.5 being your amputees and more functionable players. The less function you have the lower your class becomes. So, for example for someone with a higher-level spinal cord injury, no feeling in their legs, they will be a class 1. On the court you can have 5 players, whom their points add to 14.5. This helps to keep the teams’ even.

Wheelchair basketball is a physical sport. A lot of contact and banging of the chairs. A lot of pushing. People fall over sometimes. Some can pop up; some we easily help then back then continue.

More so than able bodied basketball, wheelchair basketball is a game of teamwork. The game utilizes pick n rolls, seals, screens, and man outs more so than the walking counterpart. We can dive into these specifics in another video.

Stay safe stay healthy stay active.
