How We Operate

The NWBA is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, which raises funds to support the mission of the organization. 

Our Mission: In our pursuit of excellence, the National Wheelchair Basketball Association provides qualified individuals with physical disabilities the opportunity to play, learn and compete in the sport of wheelchair basketball.

In order to bring this mission to life, the NWBA is organized as follows: 



In addition to the Divisional Structure, the NWBA relies on a group of volunteer leaders to drive our Committees and the strategic priorities that fall under their purview. Below is a diagram displaying the structure of the Committees. 

Visit the Leadership Teams page to learn more about the objectives of each committee, the members of each committee, and to contact them as needed.



The NWBA operates under a set of Bylaws that are voted on by registered members of the organization. In addition to the Bylaws, the NWBA has policies and procedures that are approved by the Board of Directors. The goals and objectives of the organization are derived from the Strategic Plan of the organization, which all can be accessed by clicking here.
