The Midwest Wheelchair Sport and Social Club (MDWSSC) is an organization of compassionate individuals who unite their efforts and talents. Our mission is to provide quality recreational and social programs to individiuals with physical disabilities. MDWSSC works to complement resources already in place while respecting the culture of those whos lives it touches.
Our club is exclusively for those with spinal cord injuries and lower extremity impairments, who still want to enjoy physical activities. Many common sport activities have been adapted for play by those without the full use of their legs. These adaptations create easy maneuverability in a wheelchair while keeping the fast pace of the original game.
Through various outings and activities we seek to give our members fulfillment through athletics and comradery against other athletes with similar disabilities.
Our members are a diverse community of professional men and women, who’s positive outlook on life inspire others. Members that join our club will be provided the opportunity to recreate socially and competitively.
