Wheelchair Basketball for Kids

We are excited to announce the first practice for wheelchair basketball is going to be Sunday, Dec 3rd

This is a joint effort of Dynamic Orthopedics, Memorial Adaptive Sports and the Sharks adult wheelchair basketball team.  We have collaborated to bring this sporting outlet for kids together.  There is no other ongoing sporting activity like this for kids in the South Florida area with physical disabilities.  The benefits of socialization, exercise and self confidence are rewarding to the player and the family!  Luis Amaro has been playing wheelchair basketball for over 15 years himself and has the desire to help coach this newly forming team.  Also, we have volunteers that include Nova DPT Students who are motivated to come alongside these kids in support during practices.  The team will fall under the nonprofit of the Fort Lauderdale Sharks.

So now you are asking how you can be involved in this amazing opportunity?  I’m glad you asked!  Choose one or ALL of the following:

  • If you are age 5-16 years old, come out and play!
  • If you have a child age 5-16 years old, bring your child to practice!
  • If you want to support this non-profit team financially, contact Ray at rshipman@mhs.net

This sport requires athletic basketball wheelchairs.  It is our desire to see these kids get these wheelchairs for ongoing play capability


Sunday, December 3rd from 4PM-6PM

 Joseph C. Carter Park

1450 W Sunrise Blvd

Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311

The practice schedule will continue biweekly.
