GLASA’s Chicago Bears Wheelchair Football Team Hosts Tournament

In 2020, GLASA became one of only nine organizations to be granted a team in the USA Wheelchair Football League offered by Move United. The USA Wheelchair Football League (USAWFL) is the first of its kind football league for adults with disabilities to reach their highest potential through a competitive, fast-paced, team sport. The USAWFL brings together highly trained coaches with passionate athletes, building skills and inspiring athletes to excel both on and off the field through teamwork.

Now with 11 teams across the country, the GLASA Chicago Bears is excited to host the first tournament of the 2022 season on August 13 & 14 at the College of Lake County (19351 W Washington Street, Grayslake, IL 60030). There will be seven teams competing including teams from Birmingham, Buffalo, Dallas, Green Bay, Los Angeles and New Orleans and, of course the hometown favorite! This will be an exciting event for all in attendance!

Spectators are welcome and it is free to attend!  Check out all of the information on the Move United website.
