-

By all accounts, the Warriors are a powerhouse. Currently ranked 3rd in the nation, this team has their eyes firmly fixed on bringing home the national title. It’s all about bragging rights, really – as the Windy City Warriors head into this season, hoping to clinch their 9th IHSA Wheelchair Basketball Championship.

Windy City Warriors

The Windy City Warriors is the premier junior wheelchair basketball team in DuPage, composed of top athletes from several middle schools and high schools from throughout the county. The Warriors are a travel team, competing recently in Minnesota and Kansas. But coming up this month, the team will be hosting a fast-paced, action packed wheelchair basketball tournament.

The Windy City Warriors are an adapted sports program through WDSRA. They are currently ranked 3rd in the nation and are 8-time IHSA State Champions in the Junior Division of Wheelchair Basketball.
