Recreation Sports & Facilities

Wheelchair Athletics

Founded in 1973, UW-Whitewater Wheelchair Athletics has played a monumental part in our campus' history. Our program includes a men's and a women's intercollegiate wheelchair basketball team competing at the highest level in the NWBA's intercollegiate division. Our teams have been fortunate to feature many current, past and future Paralympic athletes and coaches. In addition, we aim to provide opportunities to all by offering adaptive recreation opportunities for the campus community via Rec and Intramural Sports. Our facilities include a fully adapted weight room, many basketball chairs and hand-cycles, a multipurpose gym and much more provided by the university.

Throughout the course of a season, the teams will host both an intercollegiate tournament and a juniors tournament in the Williams Center. Both teams also travel around the country competing against other intercollegiate division teams. We would love to have you check out the exciting action at our home events or on the road! Schedule and event information will be posted as it becomes known.
