One of only nine sanctioned teams in the country, Greater Buffalo Adaptive’s wheelchair football team competes in at least two national tournaments each season, against the other NFL-affiliated teams. The program is run by and partially sponsored by Bob Woodruff Foundation , NFL Foundation, and Move United. Our team has doubled since its inaugural season in 2021, and we are always looking for more athletes. This 7 v. 7 touch-style game is played outdoors on blacktop or indoors on a multipurpose surface.

Youth Wheelchair Football
We are looking to start a youth wheelchair football team in 2023. It will follow the same format of play as the adult team, modified for younger athletes.
The current barrier we face with beginning a youth team is equipment. GBAS is looking to purchase at least 10 youth-specific sports wheelchairs through grants and donations.
