AMP 1 Basketball

AMP1 is the only organized team of amputees playing stand-up (versus wheelchair) basketball in the country.

Comprised of amputee athletes who connected via YouTube while seeking opportunities to play competitive stand-up basketball, AMP1 demonstrates that all you need is courage, motivation and heart to follow your dreams. With the help of high-tech prosthetics, the team has overcome lower limb amputations caused traumatic accidents, birth defects and cancer to go on and play able-bodied, non-amputee teams– and often win!
