Welcome

Welcome to the 2022 Season of  the Anchorage School District / Challenge Alaska wheelchair basketball season. The team will meet to practice and play Monday - Friday, from November 10 through December 9, from 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Service High School gymnasium  (use the southwest entrance). To be eligible for the season you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be enrolled in the Anchorage School District in grades 6-12.
  2. Be willing to commit to attend practice consistently.
  3. Have a desire to develop skills necessary to play wheelchair basketball.
  4. Be able to understand, retain and abide by the rules of wheelchair basketball.
  5. Be able to manually maneuver either a sport wheelchair (provided) the distance of a basketball court.
  6. Be a team player

If you wish to get PE credit for wheelchair basketball you must speak with your curriculum principal BEFORE the season begins about applying for "credit by choice." You will complete the necessary paperwork and bring with you the first day of practice. The coaches will let you know how to proceed from there.

On the first day please bring, a water bottle, wear athletic clothing (dress for the sport you're playing) and bring your enthusiasm to learn a challenging fun sport. We will be in compliance with current ASD policy regarding Covid 19 protocols so please be prepared to adapt as necessary.

If you have questions please contact us BEFORE the season begins rather than waiting until the first day we meet.
