About ALBERTA NORTHERN LIGHTS WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL SOCIETY
The Alberta Northern Lights Wheelchair Basketball Society (ANL) is a registered charity that provides wheelchair basketball programming and HiLights school wheelchair programs to Northern and Central Alberta. Founded in 1976, the Alberta Northern Lights have been world leaders in the development of wheelchair basketball and its athletes - both at the recreational and elite levels.
The Alberta Northern Lights build a truly integrated wheelchair basketball community. We offer programs for all athletes regardless of gender, age and skill level, and regardless of whether they experience disability or not. Our programs are developed to be inclusive of athletes with a wide range of physical disabilities, but also to be inclusive of their able-bodied siblings, parents, and friends. We offer recreational programs for athletes as young as 6 years old (Minis), as well as well into their 60s. We also offer elite programs that have developed numerous Paralympic athletes and coaches.
