The annual Army vs. Navy Wheelchair Basketball Game is a spirited and exciting event for audience and participants, alike.

Everyone in the U-M community and beyond is encouraged to come out and catch some good basketball and cheer on the players, who typically include U.S. Paralympians and military veterans. The Game is free and unticketed.

The Wheelchair Game is the University’s only disability-related sports event. It began in 2006 and continues today at the urging of student volunteers and players, many of whom are veterans or ROTC cadets.

Part of the University’s annual Investing in Ability Week observance, the Game honors military veterans, reduces stigma, and promotes accessibility and disability awareness.
