Mixed Ability Rugby recognises the right of everyone to participate in rugby.
Mixed Ability Rugby provides an opportunity to engage people who may have previously viewed rugby as off-limits to them, which is a really exciting prospect. By being included in a sport that is at the core of NZ society, players are included and can build long lasting social connections.
The team is a mix of people with and without disabilities. It works by having experienced players on the team who act as ‘facilitators’ for disabled players. They assist, help, and guide the individual players on the team to fulfil their role within the game.
