COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - The National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA) has announced Dr. Dish as the “exclusive shooting machine company of the NWBA”, the world's original and longest standing wheelchair basketball national governing organization.

Founder and CEO of Airborne Athletics Inc. and Dr. Dish Basketball Doug Campbell shares his thoughts on this partnership, "Our goal at Dr. Dish Basketball is to help athletes around the world build confidence in sports and life. We can't wait to watch the wheelchair basketball teams and players compete and develop their skills on our Dr. Dish machines. Becoming the official shooting machine of the NWBA is an honor, and we're excited to provide new opportunities for members to Be Better Every Day."

Through this partnership NWBA members will be offered exclusive pricing on Dr. Dish products. Dr. Dish will also be creating wheelchair basketball drills and workouts that can be done with or without a Dr. Dish machine.

This partnership was made possible by introduction from Nick Pryor, Program Manager at Ability360. Ability360 fields an Adult Division II and Women’s Division teams with the NWBA. Thank you to Nick for making this introduction to unlock the full potential of this partnership opportunity for all NWBA members to benefit from.

Pryor states, “I would like to see every program have access to Dr. Dish because there are so many benefits in having one of their machines.” Pryor explains the benefits of Ability360 teams having a Dr. Dish machine, “We use our Dr. Dish machine at every practice, and it really helps to maximize our time. I know a lot of NWBA programs and teams don’t have a lot of time to practice and it allows us to combine drills and get more repetitions.”

Dr. Dish is the first and only shooting machine endorsed by International Basketball Federation (FIBA). Additionally, partners and customers of Dr. Dish include the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), National Basketball Association (NBA) teams, Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) teams, top NCAA basketball programs and vast number of other basketball academies/organizations.
