British Columbia Wheelchair Basketball Society’s mission is to provide experiences that inspire inclusion, participation and excellence through wheelchair basketball.  Though the delivery of grassroots programs with local community schools, to the administration of programs and camps for the Let’s Play BC program, to the delivery of weekly league games and practices, to the training and development of athletes to the provincial and Canadian national team, our programs help to develop inclusive active environments in communities throughout the province of B.C.

“Supporting a local organization that is focused on changing the lives of kids, youth and adults alike, is something our employees are excited about”, stated Docksteader Subaru General Manager, Sandro Mati. “We are excited about the opportunity to partner with BCWBS and help deliver their programs around the province”.

Look for our fully decaled Subaru Outback at our next wheelchair basketball event.
