Mixed Ability Rugby – Overview
Mixed ability rugby is an awesome format of the game and arguably captures everything that is best about our sport. Teams are made up of non-disabled players and players with varying disabilities, age 18+.
The format is 15 a-side, with passive scrummaging and the level of contact depends on certain individuals ability or medical condition. This can be shown by use of different coloured headguards/shorts or relayed verbally to opposition teams in a pre-match talk, this method is used by teams that do not want to visually single out players.
Opposition tends to be 3rds, 4ths, veterans teams and other mixed ability teams.
These are the general rules:
- Mixture of disabled and non-disabled
- Contact level adapted to individual
- Uncontested scrums
- Train from 16, play from the age of 18
