Abstract
Boise Bombers a Quad Rugby Team in Boise, Idaho

The Boise Bombers are a Quad Rugby team that travels to other cities in the US to participate in tournaments. The team includes 7 members of which 6 have spinal cord injuries. Team members vary from year to year and have been as many as 10 players.
The team requires funding to support travel to other cities where there are quad rugby teams. The team will also sponsor a tournament in Boise.

For the 2019-2020 season the team is planning to bring an international (Canadian) quad rugby player to Boise. In connection with this, the Boise Bombers will sponsor a coaching clinic to help team members better understand game strategy and sharpen their skills. The coaching clinic will also include invitations to other quad rugby teams in the Northwest.

Our goal is to provide a recreational activity that increases mobility and independence for the quads that participate in our program. For the 2019-2020 season, bringing in an international quad rugby player will improve the teams competitiveness and bring all the team members to the next level of quad rugby competition.

The team partners with the local St Luke’s hospital and physicians to provide some funding and partners with the city of Boise to provide a facility for rugby practices and for wheelchair rugby equipment.
