Not just a sport for people with disabilities, Wheelchair Rugby League is an inclusive sport allowing athletes with disabilities to compete with and against those who are able-bodied.
That being the case, Wheelchair rugby league invites you and to have a go in this all-inclusive recreational activity at a come and try day this weekend.
To be held at the Menai Sport Centre on Sunday, June 6 from 3pm until 8pm, whether interested in playing, volunteering or supporting, or for those wanting to learn more about the game, all are welcome.
Wheelchair Rugby League is a variation of the running game that allows athletes with disabilities to compete with and against able-bodied people and like the other competing nations, Australia is encouraging able-bodied athletes to be get involved.
This inclusiveness has proved successful overseas, offering a level playing-field for both types of athletes that few other sports can provide.
Wheelchair Rugby League aspires to provide an inclusive recreational activity, and to promote fun, fitness and self-development while fostering good sportsmanship in a safe and positive environment.
The emphasis is on boosting the participation, health and wellbeing of individuals, and their personal performance, social interaction and self-esteem.
The aim of the come and try event is for Wheelchair Rugby League to provide more opportunities for young people across Australia to play and be involved in the sport.
The organisation looks forward to building on existing relationships connected with mainstream Rugby League in Australia, such as the Sharks and Sharks Have Heart, with the local Cronulla team competing in Sharks jerseys.
Come along, support and/or participate in the only inclusive sport that allows athletes with disabilities to compete alongside able-bodied athletes.
