Abstract/Summary People who use wheelchairs have a greater opportunity than ever before to be physically active. Scientific research continues to refine knowledge about maximizing training for those with spinal cord injuries; cutting-edge adaptive technology continues to afford more innovative and efficient movement possibilities; and opportunities for recreation and sport for athletes at all levels, from novice to expert, continue to expand worldwide. Wheelchair Sport helps coaches, teachers, and athletes at all levels maximize training and performance. It covers training principles as they apply to wheelchair athletes and sport-specific drills and tactics for basketball, rugby, tennis, racing, and hand cycling. It also provides insight into the psychology of working with wheelchair athletes.
