Mission Statement

IndependenceFIrst/Milwaukee Heat wheelchair basketball teams are excited to champion the Junior Division tournament on December 13-14th, 2014 at Brookfield Central High School. We expect roughly 18 teams from across the country to attend this exciting event. Our local kids deserve a chance to showcase their skill, their athleticism, and their talents - just like every able bodied athlete - in front of friends, peers, family that cannot travel, and their own communities!

Specifically our goals for the event are:

- To present a professional and well-organized sanctioned tournament event worthy of the top wheelchair basketball athletes

- To raise awareness of the exciting Paralympic sport of wheelchair basketball

- To enhance the development of high performing athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and administrators

- To showcase a dynamic and exhilarating sport which promotes a healthy confident capable image of ABILITY

- To develop successful partnerships with community groups and organizations which contribute to the overall success of the event

- To operate the tournament in a self-sufficient and financially responsible manner

Description
