Wheelchair lacrosse offers a challenging game for players interested in fast-paced action. This sport packs a punch and involves speed, finesse and teamwork. Wheelchair lacrosse is physical, high-demand, lightning-fast fun. Season length is May-August, but it is never too late to join.
What it is
Wheelchair lacrosse is played on a roller hockey rink or box lacrosse pad with eight players per side. Two players must remain in the offensive half and three in the defensive half at all times. It is played using a no-bounce ball and sports chairs or rugby chairs. We offer an equipment loan program for all equipment required including pads, sticks, helmets and sports chairs!
New to the sport? Curious how to play? Want to try out the equipment? Come and test drive the game at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute. It's a great opportunity to meet the coaches and players!
