The wheelchair is considered part of the body, offensive players are allowed four seconds in the lane and there is no double dribble. As in wheelchair handball, teams play within either junior varsity or varsity division. Junior varsity teams use an 8½foot hoop and a NCAA’s women’s basketball and the varsity teams use a standard 10–foot hoop and a NCAA men’s basketball. The AAASP season ends with two state Wheelchair Basketball Championships — one for varsity and one for junior varsity — where the best teams from throughout the state compete for their respective titles.
Eligible participants, whose primary disability must be physical, are boys and girls attending grades 1–12. They are able to walk unassisted, with devices, or use manual or power wheelchairs. All participants must compete in a manual or power wheelchair.
