Men’s 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. NAS’ team is sponsored by Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, NE and is called the Madonna Magic. The Magic participate in the Midwest Conference of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association. Our team generally practices once a week during the fall and winter and participates in several tournaments in the Midwest 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. Men, women, and children may play on our men’s team.
