Suncoast Spinners player and coach named in Australian team for World Cup Wheelchair Rugby League

Suncoast Spinners Wheelchair Sports Club member and coach James Hill has been named as part of the Australian team for the World Cup Wheelchair Rugby League competition in the United Kingdom later this year.
Suncoast Spinners president Bridie Kean said everyone at the Club was really excited for James, who plays wheelchair rugby league as well as playing and coaching wheelchair basketball.
“This is the second time James has been selected to play for Australia and he has also played for Queensland in State of Origin competitions,” Bridie said.
James, 23, has been playing wheelchair sport since 2014 after accompanying a friend to a social game. He said at Sunshine Coast Spinners, Reverse Inclusion, where able-bodied people were encouraged to play together with those in a wheelchair to develop a truly inclusive sport, was a key part of their mission.

Suncoast Spinners throw open doors to invite community to come and try wheelchair sports

The Suncoast Spinners Wheelchair Sports Club is throwing open the doors to its social wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby sessions and inviting everyone to come find out more about the sports, and try them for themselves.

Suncoast Spinners president Bridie Kean said the club offered social wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby sessions every week, for people of all ages, with and without a disability.

“When people think of wheelchair sport, they sometimes assume that its only for people who use a wheelchair in their everyday life, but it can be fun for everyone,” Bridie said.

“Even at an elite level, there are people with a disability and people without any disability playing these sports because of the unique challenges and competition opportunities they provide.”
