The Banner Wheelchair Suns Basketball Team and the Mesa Association of Sports for the Disabled have formed a partnership to provide basketball skills training and development to wheelchair athletes ages 6 to 21 or graduation from high school.

Potential athletes must be able to catch a basketball bounced from ten feet and chest pass to a partner standing eight feet away. Adaptations can be made to the height of the basket for our younger athletes.

Practices take place on weekends and weeknights in Mesa.


The Sports for Individuals with Physical Disabilities program is designed for athletes ages 6 and older who have an orthopedic, neurological or sensory impairment. This could include, but not be limited to, Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Amputee, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cerebral Palsy and Blindness.
