SLWAA was founded in 1989 as a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization with the assistance of SSM Rehabilitation Institute (now known as SSM Rehab) and the St. Louis Rolling Rams basketball team. SLWAA and SSM Rehab worked together to meet the competitive and recreational needs of youth and adults with physical disabilities in Metro St. Louis. Our menu of programs has grown and expanded since this time. In 1997, SLWAA became an independent organization. We now offer programs for individuals of all ages. These include wheelchair basketball, track and field, road racing, softball, quad rugby, tennis, scuba diving, water skiing, tennis, golf, snow skiing, and more. These programs allow us to achieve our mission of improving the physical condition and quality of life of the disabled through participation in sport.
