Quad-rugby

You can be part of the first team of wheelchair rugby in Spain, or quad-rugby, that was created in October 2011.

It is an Olympic sport since 1996, specifically for quadriplegics. It combines elements of rugby, basketball and handball. It is included in the Spanish Federation of Sports of People with Physical Disabilities (FEDDF), so we can fight for the first Spain Championship.

You can work your fitness, strength, endurance, speed, coordination and balance in a sport where technology is as important as collective tactics. Pass, receive, bounce the ball, block the opponents to reach the opposite goal line and scores more goals than the other team.

 

Boccia

Boccia is a Paralympic sport similar to petanque whose practice is intended for people with total or partial disabilities in their limbs, using wheelchairs.

You will work your balance, coordination and strength in the upper limbs. Test your precision and accuracy by throwing the balls and work your strategy to let them closer than the opponent to the white ball.

 

“"You have to believe only that you can do something and you will have the strength to do it"

Stacking

This season we started a new sport, the stacking. A very recent sport in our country consisting of assembling and disassembling pyramids with specially designed plastic cups in predetermined sequences. Participants compete against the clock or another player.

Any person with a capacity in the hands to take the glasses, stacking and dropping them, is ready to practice stacking.

It is a fun sport, which emphasizes the overcoming to improve day by day.

It has many therapeutic benefits as development of eye-hand coordination, laterality, both hemispheres, the response rate, the differential work of the fingers, etc. Other benefits such as improved attention and memory and increased self-esteem are also achieved.

We encourage you to try it and see how hooked!
