ParaSports Spurs In Action
Our team doing what they do!
Pushing for Excellence!
ParaSports was created by 3 experienced wheelchair basketball athletes: Lorenzo Thomas, Mike Hernandez and Willie Jackson. These athletes, all spinal cord injured, have been involved in the ports for combined total of almost 60 years.
Wheelchair basketball is played on an official size basketball court, and follows many of the same rules as the NCAA.
Adaptive Track & Field is the largest adaptive sport program in the world.
The International Wheelchair Tennis Foundation (IWTF) was introduced in 1988 with only eight members, after great effort to introduce this sport to the world on an international level.
Hand cycling is one of the newest sports involved in the Paralympic Game.
Parasports is an excellent resource for physical and emotional rehabilitation for a variety of athletes - young & old, male & female. Over the past 5 years of direct involvement with the Spurs Wheelchair Basketball Team as their liaison with the Spurs Sports & Entertainment family, we have had the privilege of working with Coach Willie Jackson and every team member in a variety of ways. At Spurs Sports & Entertainment, we're proud to have been affiliated with the Spurs Wheelchair Basketball Team all these years.
At ParaSports we believe the strength in our competitiveness lies in the the diversity and differences among each athlete. We are proud to celebrate the diversity among the athlete population
