As one of the only recognized full-contact wheelchair sports by the International Paralympic Committee, the Seattle Slam Wheelchair Rugby Association is the only one of its kind in Washington state. We offer a rare opportunity for our members to play an intense and exciting sport, develop friendships, and bond through competition all the while benefiting emotionally and physically from a structured athletics program.

The Seattle Slam Wheelchair Rugby Association was founded as a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit in 2007. Since that time, it has played a major role in improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis from spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities by providing them with a structured team based athletics program.

Wheelchair Rugby was founded by a quadriplegic in British Columbia, Canada and was originally called Murderball. The game quickly gained popularity with individuals dealing with paralysis due to a spinal cord injury or other type of physical permanent impairment. This must affect at least 3 limbs of their body to be allowed to play. The name was changed to Wheelchair Rugby and national and international governing bodies soon followed.

Seattle Slam competes in Division 1 of the United States Quadrugby Association and travels to regional and national tournaments every year. We are currently ranked 5th in the United States.
