Morris Quad Rugby
Quad Rugby is a cross between wheelchair basketball, ice hockey and soccer, and is played on a regulation-size basketball court with minor changes. Four players compete on each side of the court with each player being classified according to the level of their mobility impairment and assigned a point value for their classification. At all times, the sum of the classifications competing on each side can total no more than 8.0 points. The game consists of passing a volleyball back and forth while advancing into the opponent's half of the court. Scoring occurs when the opposing team crosses over the goal line with the volleyball.
For some of these athletes, Quad Rugby provides an outlet for their competitive spirit. For others, it is the chance to have some exercise and socialize with their teammates and opponents.

Each year, more Morris coaches continue to push themselves to coach at higher and higher levels. It was back in 2007 that Tom Feury first began to coach the MetNY U19 select side at the Challenge Cup RAST in Pittsburgh each summer. It was through that experience that he was able to work with many the top area rugby players.
On Sunday September 29, Morris Rugby hosted a USA Rugby 200 Level Coaching Clinic.
Due to unforseen circumstances that are unfortunately outside of our control, our scheduled "Murder Ball in the Fall" event scheduled for September 14th has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we look forward to scheduling a similar event in the future.
The Morris Rugby Corporation trustees meet every month. The minutes will be published each month for the benefit of the Morris Rugby community.
The event is cancelled due to inclement weather. Gibby's Run, to benefit the David Gibson Memorial Scholarship Fund aka "The Gibby", originally scheduled for October 7th does not have a rain date at this time.
