Tina Cain, Business and Compliance Manager, joined the NWBA National Office team in 2020. Tina previously worked at USA Track & Field (USATF) as the High-Performance Programs Coordinator, and most recently with the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee as Associate Director of Paralympic Track and Field National Teams. â€‹Born and raised in Indiana, Tina has been involved with the Olympic and Paralympic Movements for over 20 years.

Doug Garner, Assistant Director Campus Recreation – Adapted Sports and Recreation, Head Wheelchair Basketball Coach for UT Arlington Movin' Mavs Adapted Sports and Recreation, and past NWBA Junior Division Commissioner.  Doug Garner revolutionized the NWBA’s Junior Division. At the time Gardner became commissioner, Junior teams were averaging about ten games a year. Garner changed the that, instituting conferences, conference championships, and a mandatory minimum of games played to qualify for the national tournament. During Garner’s 18-year tenure, he went on to double the number of junior teams, initiate the Varsity Banquet, implement the top 32 ranking system, create the NIT and Prep Championships; started the All-Girl tournament team, establish the college transition meeting, and then installed the first Senior Showcase game. Garner’s love for improving the game extends outside his NWBA contributions. He’s been a Technical Official for the IWBF for over a decade and won a National Championship as head coach in the Prep, Varsity, and Intercollegiate level.
