2017 Vancouver Invitational to include IWRF Classification

British Columbia Wheelchair Sports is excited to announce that the Vancouver Invitational Wheelchair Rugby Tournament, in partnership with CWSA, will host an IWRF "Type A" Classification Panel.

 

Based on the current needs of Team BC and Canada's Next Gen athletes, the tournament will be focusing on intermediate to advanced D1 teams. The capacity of the tournament is 10 teams.

 

Based on the availability of classification, we are expecting interest from International teams again this year. Germany has already expressed some interest and entry info has been sent to Japan and Brazil. Depending on the number of teams who apply to attend we are open to having teams split in half to support development.

 

Dates are set for March 10-12, 2017, with all of the action taking place at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Registration deadline for the tournament is Monday January 30th. The registration deadline for the tournament hotel is February 9th
