More About Wheelchair Basketball

National Wheelchair Basketball Association “NWBA” Rules: Wheelchair Basketball is played on a standard sized basketball court with the same measurements as in the game of stand up basketball. The game is played with five players on each team from two opposing teams, in two halves of 20 minutes each. There is a 30- second shot clock, which means a team must shoot at the basket within 30 seconds of gaining possession of the ball. There are a few obvious differences that need to be considered. The major differences between wheelchair basketball and the running game are:

• The wheelchair is considered part of the player’s body in relation to establishing responsibility for contact on court in the case of charging, blocking, going out of bounds, and other violations. Charging and blocking depends on where your chair is in relation to your opponent’s chair and the speed at which you are both traveling. This rule is the hardest to get used to and takes time before players to adjust to.

• A player can push their wheelchair and bounce the ball simultaneously, however, if the ball is picked up and/or placed on the players lap, the player is only allowed to push twice before they are must shoot, pass, or dribble the ball again.

• There is no double dribble rule in wheelchair basketball. A traveling violation occurs if the player takes more than two pushes while in possession of the ball and not dribbling. The distance a player coasts between pushes in not restricted. Player Classification Class I – Complete motor loss at T-7 or above or comparable disability where there is total loss of muscle function originating at or above T-7 (Chest Level).
