The mission of Wheelchair and Ambulatory Sports, USA is to provide multi-sport and recreation opportunities for individuals with a disability by facilitating, advocating, and developing a national community-based outreach program, providing resources and education, conducting regional and national competitions, and providing access to international competitions in conjunction with the International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports Federation.

Founded in 1956 as the National Wheelchair Athletic Association, the name of the organization was changed in 1994 to Wheelchair Sports, USA, and again in 2009 to Wheelchair & Ambulatory Sports, USA to better reflect the organization's mission and goals. The initial impetus to organize Wheelchair Sports, USA, grew out of the interests of athletes with disabilities – many of whom were veterans of World War II.

Currently, WASUSA hosts one of the largest national junior competitions for athletes with a disability in the United States. Additionally, it strives to grow and support adult-age athletes at both the regional and national level.

Programs Include: Archery, Basket Ball, Billiards, Shooting, Swimming, Table Tennis, Athletics / Track and Field and Weightlifting
