Pre-participation (continued)

As well as coach-led profiling, a physical assessment by a doctor, physiotherapist, strength and conditioning coach or sports trainer could be undertaken. Strength and conditioning coaches should only conduct assessments that they are competent in administering, in line with their organization’s protocols. This assessment could test for:

  • Functional ability
  • Speed
  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Aerobic endurance
  • Anaerobic endurance

If you are dealing with a player who has recently come out of rehabilitation, it is recommended that a doctor confirms the player is physically fit enough to play Wheelchair Rugby.
