When your child is confined to a wheelchair, nothing brings more joy than to see them active and fully engaged in something they love and look forward to doing. Since joining the program over 9 years ago, the Jr Mavs have been the center of our daughter's universe. She has made friends with kids facing similar life challenges. She has benefited from the friendship and leadership of volunteer coaches who are dedicated to helping kids experience all that wheelchair basketball has to offer. These are adults who can share how they overcame difficulties of life in a wheelchair, some of whom are world class athletes, representing the USA in the Paralympics. It has kept our daughter physically active and challenged. She has traveled across the country and made friends with kids from Seattle to Denver to Chicago. The Dallas Jr Wheelchair Mavs have helped our daughter in ways that far exceeded our expectations. Also, there is a place in the program for children with greatly differing disabilities, from barely able to push a wheelchair to highly competitive kids with strong upper bodies. They all help and support each other. This is a truly great nonprofit!!

My daugher is 16 years old and has Spina Bifida. She has always been a very active child and loves social play. As she moved into 3rd and 4th grade, her social world started to become smaller and smaller. Yes, she had friends at school; however the conversations were different than when she was with other kids with similiar differences. Her peers with disabiliites knew and understood a life her typical developing peers would never understand. She did not fit in the world of those with cognative impairments and was struggling to find full participation in those without walking differences. The Dallas Jr Mavericks was our answers. She plays for the fun of being with and talking to a group of kids just like her. They are stiving to just be kids and the team is a place in which is can be 100% open with others just like her. She has meet and is texting freinds with kids all over the USA. She is not going to play in college, she does not play every game, she plays to be a part of a group. As a parnet I love the education emphasis. Her personal team goal this year is to make the AB honor roll. Her skill goal, to be able to make a free throw. This organization has helped her be a happier person who strives to achieve goals. I am a board member so this great organization will be here for others for years to come.
