Junior Wheelchair Rugby Program

 

Wheelchair Rugby Victoria (WRV), which is operated by Disability Sport and Recreation (DSR) is looking to expand the successful senior wheelchair rugby program by developing a Wheelchair Rugby Junior Program. Wheelchair rugby is an intense, contact team sport that is a mixed gender competition. Despite its intensity, wheelchair rugby is a family-friendly, accessible sport with a true sense of community.
