About Us

Our Vision

Our Vision is to develop wheelchair basketball into a business where the return of investment complements the partnership.

Our Mission

Our mission is to achieve excellence through ongoing personal attention and commitment to wheelchair basketball, utilizing tried and tested management methods. This, in turn, has successfully insured mass participation in schools and disadvantaged areas and resulted in a feeder program in all regions from grass root level up into its local structures forming a foundation for WBSA’s Junior & Senior Men and Women’s National programs now fully supported by partnerships with Sasol, Vodacom and SuperSport. Integrated into our long term goals program, was National & International participation in our U18, U23, U25 and Senior Men & Women categories with focus on developing our Coaching Staff to prepare National Teams as a competitive unit for the IWBF World Championships, Paralympics and subsequent qualifying competitions. After WBSA embarked upon forming a Section 21 with NPO (7790767257) status, our emphasis & focus was both to leveraged huge financial support, which enabled the company to drive its domestic & international programs.

Our Sponsors

The objective that WBSA has strived to achieve, has been measured against its ability to render a deliverable service and ensure sponsor confidence.

Not only have we met with capacity building of club & provincial structures but the induction of a national uniformed development program which has allowed us with sound business ethics and with set achievable criteria, to provide a social integrated sports and life skill program for the physically disabled. 

In so doing, we aligned the sport with Government criteria by moving towards sports specific inclusion process, have created our own identity but maintained our affiliate repartee through SA Sports Association for the Physically Disabled & Basketball South Africa.

Through the SuperSport Wheelchair Basketball Series, Vodacom Wheelchair Basketball Challenge and Sasol High Performance Program; all sponsorship is not only exposed to both National News and Broadcast Media Houses, but ensures involvement in community and social enhancement programs such as the Provincial Club Championship leagues

The induction of Provincial Leagues and National Championships played in conjunction with the SuperSport Series has created a balance in Elite player & coaching programs for the Sasol National Teams and coupled with mass participation inducts WBSA’s philosophy of taking the sport to the people

We are aware of the challenge ahead and have committed to meeting the demanding schedule set and take this opportunity to express humble gratitude to all those that have supported us in the on growing quest as we will strive to meet these challenging frontiers.

Thank you for allowing WBSA to live out its vision through you and provide our athletes with physical disabilities, a better quality of sporting life.
