The Lakeshore Foundation, 4000 Ridgeway Drive, Birmingham, AL, is hosting the 2017 Tri Nations Wheelchair Rugby Invitational on May 10-13 with the USA, Canada and Japan participating. The teams are ranked 2, 4 and 3, respectively.

In years where the Paralympics or World’s are not being held, there are fewer competitions. This tournament provides a competition prior to teams going to Tokyo and then for the USA and Canada, going to the Americas Tournament in Paraguay later this Summer in attempt to qualify for the World’s.

Mandy Goff and Clay Brackett, the USA Wheelchair Rugby High Performance Manager and USA Wheelchair Rugby player, respectively, were interviewed WJOX 94.5 FM on the Opening Drive. It was a tremendous interview that was posted on USA Wheelchair Rugby Facebook page describing the USA’s participation in the Paralympics, the Tri Nations Wheelchair Rugby Invitational and other upcoming competitions and more. The support by Jay Barker and Tony Kurre of WJOX 94.5 FM is certainly appreciated by supporters of USA Wheelchair Rugby.
