Wheelchair Aussie Rules!

ALL AGES WELCOME…

“ALL ABILITIES” Suitable for people with or without a disability.

Wheelchair Aussie Rules (WCAR) has been developed to provide all Australian Football enthusiasts with a disability with a match play experience that has strong parallels with the traditional game. Importantly, WCAR is easy to play, not too physically demanding and provides an environment whereby participation, enjoyment and safety are a priority.

WCAR is a totally inclusive sport meaning anyone can play up to national level.

The game is played between two teams of five (5) with interchange players. The field is an indoor basketball or netball court (which can be modified depending on the age and ability level of participants) and is divided into three zones, a centre zone and t wo scoring zones. Teams’ score by hand balling (kick) or passing the football into their attacking scoring zone to the designated scorer who can score a goal or behind by hand balling the ball between the goal posts. A mark is awarded when the ball has travelled 3 metres.
