Far West Wheelchair Sports (FWWS) is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization which promotes, develops, and organizes wheelchair sports for individuals with physical disabilities. It it the largest sanctioned Regional Sports group of Wheelchair Sports, USA (WSUSA) and includes California, Arizona, and Nevada. FWWS was incorporated in 1968 and operates under the guidance of a Board of Directors.
