The club was set up in 2008 by a group of parents and IWA Sport. They all saw the need for an inclusive club to cater for their children as well as for others with physical disabilities.
The range of physical disabilities affecting these youngsters is vast. Examples: Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Dyspraxia, Hydrocephalus….the list is endless.
The club sessions focus on fun and inclusion. Each and every member is encouraged to try a variety of sport and games. Coaches of different sports also come to the club and share their knowledge and training with Rebel Wheelers members. Games and sports are played by wheelchair users and ambulant members alike. Many members participate in a range of competitionsacross the country. Some parents are now qualified as trainers. Either way they are all on the road to various sporting events throughout the year!
