Sample skills and drills for wheelchair basketball

A great deal has been written on basketball skills and how to teach these skills to athletes. Such is not the case in wheelchair basketball. Though wheelchair basketball has been played since shortly after World War II, very little has been presented in the literature specifically for the sport. As a result, most coaches and players of wheelchair basketball have taken what they learned from the running game of basketball and tried to adapt it to wheelchair basketball with varying degrees of success. Some of what is taught in the running game of basketball can be transferred to wheelchair basketball; however, the different levels of muscle function present in wheelchair basketball and the different movements resulting from using a wheelchair present some unique skills. This chapter will focus on some of those differences and emphasize the individual and team skills used in wheelchair basketball.
