Nebraska Jr Barons Wheelchair Softball
Wheelchair softball is an competitive, exciting, and challenging summer sport that enables most wheelchair users to compete. Who may participate? Generally, anyone with a permanent disability to a lower extremity can play wheelchair softball. Every player needs to be “certified” to determine eligibility and level of disability.
The Nebraska Jr Barons wheelchair softball team make their home at Nebraska Barons Field at ALLPLAY Complex in Omaha. The Barons now practice and play on the nation’s finest wheelchair softball field. The specifically designed field allows the players to maximize their abilities and play wheelchair softball to their ultimate potential.
The junior division was established by NWSA specifically to provide an opportunity for disabled youths to enjoy the thrills and experiences of America’s pastime. As a result of their disabilities many children are left out of experiencing the joys provided by competitive athletics. But just like their classmates in school who play in YMCA and other competitive leagues, youth with disabilities should have the opportunity to experience and joys, sense of belonging to a team, health benefits, and all the life lessons provided by playing athletics.
The Jr Nebraska Barons are primarily sponsored by ALLPLAY Foundation and Nebraska Adaptive Sports.
