13th Annual Columbus Collision Wheelchair Rugby Tournament

The Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio (ASPO) held the 13th Annual Columbus Collision Wheelchair Rugby Tournament in Columbus, Ohio December 5th and 6th, 2015. As always I first need to give a big thank you to Columbus Therapeutic Recreation and Parks who provides us a great playing facility at Cleo Dumaree Athletic Complex and transportation for the weekend, their support over the years has been much appreciated, not to mention providing staff for the event as well. Anyone who organizes and runs a rugby tournament knows that you can’t do it without the support of the volunteers, thanks to all the students and volunteers who made this event a success. Bob Lopez served as the head referee, did a great job getting referees to Columbus and ran a smooth operation all weekend.

2015 USQRA Division I & Division II results

April 3, 2015 — 5:00pm

USQRA Divisions

The divisions of the USQRA are currently set up as D1 D2 and D3 but what do they really mean? As my understanding D1 consists of the top 8 teams that qualify for nationals. D2 consists of the remaining teams that haven’t declared themselves as developmental. D3 consists of team that have declared themselves as developmental teams. So at the beginning of the season and throughout the question remains in the air of where teams really stand. This makes it very hard to have evenly competitive tournaments.
