Phase 3 - Return to play

Players should only return to play once the coach, doctor or physiotherapist has tested them to ensured that they are ready to return to the court.

Players returning after an injury must once again demonstrate that they are Wheelchair Rugby Ready. Testing to confirm this should include similar fitness tests to those used at the beginning of the season, and Wheelchair Rugby skills and movements that the players will perform in a game situation.

Player profiling information should be used to compare performances and see if the player is once again Wheelchair Rugby Ready. If a player can demonstrate the same performance level as pre-injury, then they are once again Wheelchair Rugby Ready.
