NE Red Dawgs

The Nebraska Red Dawgs Placed 11th in the Nation!
2017 National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament in Louisville, KY
2017_Nationals_team_photo_webENWAA’s youth team is called the Nebraska Red Dawgs. The Red Dawgs participate the youth division of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association. The Red Dawgs usually have enough players to have varsity and junior varsity teams. The younger players will play on a court with a lower rim and smaller basketball. Youth Wheelchair Basketball is played on a regulation court using NCAA men’s basketball rules with some exceptions. Rules for dribbling and lane violations are the main exceptions. Our team generally practices once a week during the fall and winter and participates in several tournaments across the U.S. each year. Who may participate? Generally, anyone with a permanent disability to a lower extremity can play wheelchair basketball. Every player needs to be “certified” to determine eligibility and level of disability. Players under 21 and in high  school or younger grades may play on our youth team. Both boys and girls are invited.
