USA Wheelchair Football League

Two wheelchair football players wearing red helmets play on a concrete court outside.

TheĀ USA Wheelchair Football League is coming to Birmingham! In 2020, thanks to generous support from the NFL-Bob Woodruff Foundation Salute to Service Partnership, Move United established the first ever USA Wheelchair Football League. And now, Birmingham has been added as an expansion team for the 2021 season joining Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Phoenix and Tampa.

While you may be familiar with wheelchair flag football, USA Wheelchair Football takes the game to the next level. This co-ed league plays with more contact, a larger field and touch tackles. Tryouts for Lakeshore’s team will take place July 10. If you are interested in trying out for the team, please register by clicking the button below or contact Rob Welty at or 205-313-7457.
