Crash! Boom! Bang! Loud, with all the metal-on-metal collisions. Wheelchair rugby is one of the most unique wheelchair sports because it is only played by athletes with four limb impairments. Each team consists of 4 players who carry or pass the ball until they score by crossing the opposition’s goal line. The game combines many of the strategies and skills employed in basketball, rugby and hockey.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
