What is Wheelchair Basketball?
The exceptions are rules which have been modified with consideration for the wheelchair. For example, "travelling" in wheelchair basketball occurs when the athlete touches his wheels more than twice after receiving or dribbling the ball. The individual must pass, bounce or shoot the ball before touching the wheels again.
As a player trains and practices, they tone and strengthen various muscles in the body while increasing stamina. Wheelchair football is a type of team sport that encourages communication between the players, improving one's social skills. Becoming better in the sport also helps increase confidence.
