Ever see the movie Murder Ball? That's wheelchair rugby! Similar to wheelchair basketball, but hold onto your chair! Wheelchair rugby is a fast-paced, competitive sport for people who use wheelchairs. It's a great
opportunity to get wild with others with limited function in all four limbs. Beginners are welcome. It may be possible to join the team after the
series starts; please call to inquire.
PLEASE NOTE: No participant will be turned away due to financial hardships. Cost sharing and scholarships are available. Contact the program coordinator for more information.
