What is Wheelchair Curling?

In wheelchair curling each team is mixed, and one female athlete must be on the ice at all times during the competition. Teams are composed of five athletes: a lead, second, vice-skip, skip, and alternate. A game consists of eight ends. In wheelchair curling there is no sweeping, which means each throw has to be even more precise. The player’s wheelchair must be stationary during the throw and the stones can be thrown by hand or given an initial push with a cue. Learn more about wheelchair curling on the Paralympic Canada website.
