Watch our Wheelchair Football Championship 2017! Spectators are welcome.

Teams consist of six players with at least one female and one quadriplegic participant. The rules are similar to the NFL, except for some differences, for example, the game is played on a hard surface, and participants use wheelchairs. A tackle consists of being touched with one hand above the waist, including the arm and hand. There are no fumbles. 

Wheelchair football is incredibly fun to watch, and we encourage you to join us!
