Mission Statement

The mission of Far West Wheelchair Athletic Association (FWWAA) is to develop, promote, and organize community based sport and recreation programs for individuals of all ages with various physical disabilities.

Description

Since 1968 FWWAA has supported a philosophy that focuses on the ability, not the disability of an individual. We provide the tools necessary to help our athletes develop independence as well as a positive self-image. FWWAA fosters these ideals through physical activity by offering the same movement opportunities as their able-bodied peers across the lifespan. Through our programs, athletes have an opportunity to increase their social, psychological and physical well-being. These programs include individual and team opportunities, camps, clinics, and competition at the regional and national level. FWWAA programs cater to a wide array of individuals with physical disabilities. These physical disabilities include but are not limited to cerebral palsy, spina bifida, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, amputation, visual impairments, muscular dystrophy, and other neuromuscular impairments. FWWAA strives to increase community awareness of programs and opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities by working with local businesses, schools, government and other public sectors to increase community engagement.
