Volunteers are the lifeblood of Wheelchair Rugby. We couldn't play the sport without them, from support staff, referees, and classifiers to volunteers at tournaments and clinics. Wheelchair Rugby needs its supporting infrastructure. We need good people who want to make a difference to fill these roles. The wheelchair rugby community is often referred to as the "wheelchair rugby family." Whether you're a newly injured athlete looking to get involved for the first time, a former athlete looking to rekindle your career, or a potential coach, support staff, medical staff, referee, classifier or volunteer, there's a place for you in Ireland's Wheelchair Rugby community. Come along, meet the players and find out what it is all about. For more information about getting involved look through the range of opportunities below or contact us for more information.
Wheelchair rugby is about inspirational people, it’s about teamwork and trust, community, social responsibility and the extraordinary human capacity to embrace challenge and seek the positive.
Wheelchair Rugby Ready is a joint initiative between the International Wheelchair Rugby Federation and the International Rugby Board. Wheelchair Rugby Ready is intended to raise awareness of good practices, and to help all participants manage the inherent risks of a contact sport by putting appropriate safeguards in place. If you want to learn a bit more about each area of the sport then you can register for free and in your own time learn everything there is to know about wheelchair rugby that can help you decide what role you could play in the sport.
