  • The New England Wheelchair Athletic Association (NEWAA) is a Regional Sports Organization (RSO) of Wheelchair Sports USA (WSUSA). Since 1966 the NEWAA has held competitive Sporting Events for Disabled Athletes. Anyone who has a mobility-limiting physical disability, from novice to elite athlete, are welcome and encouraged to participate in NEWAA events. Spinal cord injuries, Spina-Bifida, Post-Polio, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, and Amputation are a few examples of the challenges our Athletes meet.

    Individuals compete against others of 'Similar Ability' based on a Classification System. There are three age divisions: Juniors (up to age 21), Adult (21 to 39), and Masters (40 & over).
