Rugby chairs are expensive to purchase ( ~$4-6000) and maintain. However, there are grant opportunities for individuals that want to find assistance to participate in the sport of Wheelchair Rugby. Both the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) and Kelly Brush Foundation (Spinal Cord Injury only) have annual grant programs to assist with the cost of purchasing a chair, traveling or travel associated with competition. It is important to apply in a timely manner, even if you are not completely sure about which type of chair or chair set up you will be using, if you receive the grant funding. While both foundations are considering your application, you may work on finding what kind of rugby chair will meet your needs.
