Wheelchair Rugby League

Wheelchair Rugby League

Wheelchair Rugby League is an adaptive, all-inclusive sport - not just a sport for people with disabilities. It is a variation of the running game that allows athletes with disabilities to compete with and against able-bodied people.

This inclusiveness offers a level playing-field for both types of athletes that few other sports can provide. Our sport provides an inclusive recreational activity which promotes fun, fitness and self-development while fostering good sportsmanship in a safe and positive environment.

Alongside NRL Wheelchair, Canberra Region Rugby League recognise a social gap in rugby league and wish to expand our identity and reach of community senior and junior rugby league in the Canberra region and southern NSW.

We are committed to educating our community and promoting the physical and mental benefits of participating in our adaptive all-inclusive sport. Our sport provides pathways for participants to represent their respective region and contributes to making Wheelchair Rugby League a global sport.
