Thank you for your interest in Volunteering with Sportable's Wheelchair Rugby Program!  

 

There is a mandatory volunteer training on Wednesday, July 17th at the Sportable office, from 6-7pm. The practice information can be found below.

 

 

Wheelchair Rugby is a sport played by individuals, ages 14 and over, with an impairment of all four limbs (SCI-quadriplegia, MS, CP, amputations, etc.). In the U.S., wheelchair rugby is governed by the United States Quad Rugby Association (USQRA).

This will be a 10-week, continuation of the summer program.  The practices will run on a half court for the duration of the time. Open scrimmages are planned for the last 45 minutes of practice.

 

Training will run from 7-9 pm. Participants should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to have enough time to transfer into one's equipment and put on the necessary hand protection to participate.
