The DASA Junior Rolling Rams is a coed, competitive wheelchair basketball team made up of children up to the age of 18 years.
Our athletes do not have to use a wheelchair in everyday life to play wheelchair basketball. However, our athletes do have to have an irreversible lower extremity disability which consistently interferes with functional mobility. Players do not need experience, or a wheelchair to get started. We provide coaching, as well as wheelchairs for initial practice and play.
The DASA Junior Rolling Rams practice at South County Technical High School between September and April. During the season, the team travels throughout the Midwest participating in tournaments; hosting fundraisers and bringing awareness to the sport. The season wraps up with a national tournament held in April, which attracts nearly 1,000 athletes. Wheelchair basketball is now a competitive sport played at many universities including; Arizona State, University of Alabama, University of Missouri Columbia, UCLA, Texas A & M, Indiana University – to name just a few.
If you, or someone you know, is looking to participate in a competitive sport, please consider playing for the DASA Junior Rolling Rams. The opportunity enriches and nurtures the lives of our athletes; builds their self-esteem; encourages greater self -confidence, and provides a wonderful social network. The sport also teaches teamwork, competitive skills and discipline.
