NubAbility Athletics Coach

Zach Nabers

The best part about camp is meeting other people like me who share similar experiences. When I turned 17, I officially able to become a NubAbility Coach. Helping young limb different kids who love basketball has been amazing.”

About Zach

Limb Difference: Traumatic

Type: Missing Right Arm (Below Elbow)

Sport: Basketball

When Zach was 11 years old, he was involved in a boating accident. Zach was standing on the dock holding the rope to keep the boat from floating off. When his grandmother’s husband went to park the trailer, the end of the trailer caught the rope, which was was wrapped around Zach wrist. He was drug 30 yards, and the weight of the boat tore all of the ligaments from his hand to shoulder.

After being taken into surgery at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, it was determined that amputation was the best course of action due to severe nerve, tendon and ligament damage. Looking back and remembering the accident, Zach knows that losing his hand was a blessing. He is lucky to be alive.

Zach says the most difficult part of playing basketball without a hand is ball control.

Sports + Highlights:

● Lowndes High School (GA): Shooting Guard (4yrs)

● Valdosta Shooters AAU (GA): Shooting Guard (4yrs)

● Valdosta State University (GA): Shooting Guard


Zach is a bona fide “sneakerhead.” He works part-time buying and selling hard to find tennis shoes.
