Wheelchair Basketball - Wheelchair & Adaptive Sports - Mary Free Bed
As a wheelchair basketball player, you or your child will use precise and daring chair skills. Learn to stop your chair on a dime, reach up with both hands to catch a flying pass and sail down the court.

Junior and Adult Pacers Wheelchair Basketball Team

The Junior and Adult Pacers is a competitive sports program open to you as a full- or part-time wheelchair user. Most participants have amputations, cerebral palsy or spina bifida. Team participation with the Junior Pacers involves local and away games, travel around Michigan and the United States, and competition in a national tournament.

There are two junior teams, Prep and Varsity. Prep uses an 8.5-foot tall basket and Varsity uses a 10-foot tall basket. Top athletes have received scholarships to play college-level wheelchair sports.

Age Guidelines
Junior Pacers: 7 to 18 years old
