What it is

Wheelchair softball is similar to standard softball, but altered rules accommodate the use of wheelchairs and players with varying ability levels. It is played on a hard surface instead of grass so players have an easier time pushing from base to base and uses a softer ball so players do not need a glove.

What to bring

The only equipment needed is a sports wheelchair. Athletes do not need to use a wheelchair for every day mobility to play. We offer an equipment loan program to provide specialized sports wheelchairs so you can fully participate in a season. Bats and balls will be provided and a glove is optional.
