The USA Team has been formally accepted as a participant at the 2021 Rugby League World Cup - England UK as a participant in the Wheelchair Rugby League (WhRL) division. It joins 7 other nations - France, Norway, Scotland, Australia, Spain, England and Wales to compete in the World Cup alongside the men's and women's divisions.
The Rugby League World Cup 2021 is a highly prestigious event and will be broadcasted worldwide on all media platforms. As a potential USA Wheelchair Rugby League player, we wanted to provide you with information concerning our participation. Sheffield, England will be the home base for the USA Hawks Wheelchair RL Team at the RLWC 2021!
Beginning in January 2021, training and coaching of interested players will begin in Columbia, South Carolina, initially on a monthly basis but ramping up as we get closer to the World Cup and the team selection is narrowed down. A training plan will be developed shortly which will include learning the game, rules of the game and physical conditioning. Wheelchair Rugby League is not wheelchair rugby, or what was commonly called “Murderball”. It is an entirely different game but a game that can be quickly learned.
