Cheer on the Crazy 8s at the St. Louis Rams Wheelchair Rugby Crazy 8s Tournament

Crazy 8s Tournament Cheer on the Crazy 8s at the St. Louis Rams Wheelchair Rugby Crazy 8s Tournament sponsored by the Saint Louis Wheelchair Athletic Association. The tournament will be in Perryville, MO on December 4th & 5th at the Perry Park Center (800 City Park Drive).

To volunteer at the tournament contact Meghan Gottlieb (gottliebm@wustl.edu) or Lindsey Kampwerth (lindsey.r.bean@gmail.com).

Wheelchair rugby has roots in wheelchair basketball and ice hockey and was originally called Murderball. Four players from each team are on the court at a time and is played on a regulation-sized basketball court with a few changes. There are four 8 minute periods. Then each player has 15 seconds to advance the ball into the opponents half-court. A player has to cross the goal line with two of their four wheels to score a point.

If you’re in the area or even if you aren’t come out and cheer on the athletes!
