Join the Adaptive Sports Club for Wheelchair Basketball!
Wednesdays @ 7pm at the Rec Center basketball courts

All are welcome to participate in wheelchair basketball every Wednesday night at 7pm. This is for students of all abilities, and no prior experience needed to participate! For more information on the sport, visit the National Wheelchair Basketball Association webpage.


Keep an eye out – weekly Goalball games will be starting soon!

The sport, designed for athletes with visual impairments, consists of two halves of 12 minutes each and athletes wear blackout masks on a playing court.

The object of the game is to roll the ball into the opposite goal while opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. Bells inside the balls help orient the players, indicating the direction of the on-coming ball. Therefore, while play is in progress, complete silence is required in the venue to allow the players to instantly react to the ball. Learn more about the game at

If so, consider applying to join the Office of Victim Services Peer Victim Advocate (PVA) training course this spring semester!

Training will be held weekly, on Thursdays, from 3:30-4:45pm. The course will start February 2 and end on April 20 (no March 9 and April 6). The group will meet in the Health Center, Room 206. *This training is on a volunteer basis and not for course credit.*

Students completing this 10 week training will become members of the PVA team and will be educated on providing advocacy and support to survivors of crime. Additionally, students will learn how to facilitate educational programs related to issues involving relationship violence, sexual violence, stalking, healthy relationships and related topics.

Ball State has a long tradition of being a welcoming and accessible campus for students with disabilities, with over 800 students using at least one service from the office of Disability Services. I ask that you please review the information below regarding policies and procedures in working with students with disabilities. Please contact me (; 285-5293; Student Center 116) if you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these items. Also, I have recently recorded a presentation for faculty that goes into more detail about many of these issues.
