Wheelchair rugby meets sports camp status

Wheelchair rugby star Will Groulx of Portland, widely known for his role in the hit film “Murderball,” was a main attraction last week at a national wheelchair rugby camp at Beaverton, OR, based ADAPT Training.

Paralympic Rugby U.S. Team Assistant Coach Ed Suhr teamed with specialists from ADAPT Training to put on the rugby clinic which ran June 28th through July 2nd. Seven athletes attended the clinic which cost $600 for the week per athlete.

The video below is the local news coverage story on the camp.

Along with playing wheelchair rugby as a member of the Portland Pounders, Groulx also mentors children who have similar spinal cord injuries, helping them cope with the transition.
