FUNDRAISING 


Raise and save funds for your program
 
The National Wheelchair Softball Association (NWSA) is dedicated to helping teams and individuals raise funds to support their continued participation in wheelchair softball.  The association is aggressively seeking corporate donations as well as developing strategic alliances which will ultimately help the sport grow.

The wheelchair softball community has more than doubled in size over the last 10 years both in number of players and teams. Nationally focused tournaments other than the National Wheelchair Softball Tournament (NWST) emerged with the introduction wheelchair softball at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG) in 1996 and the Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament (MLWST) in 2000. 

Major League Baseball (MLB) club-sponsored wheelchair softball teams more than tripled in the last ten years providing an opportunity for wheelchair athletes to compete under that affiliation.  In 2005, MLB invited players from affiliated teams to participate in an exhibition during the MLB All-Star Game Fan Fest in Detroit.

Wheelchair softball is also gaining international interest and was recently introduced in Belgium at the European Softball Championship. Players from the United Kingdom and Puerto Rico have played the game for almost ten years and in 2000, Australia built the most-southern official wheelchair softball field on earth.

2006 promises to be one of the biggest and best years of our history as we commemorate our 30th anniversary, pay tribute to those who have passed before us and work to foster a national wheelchair softball program for children with disabilities.
