USA Wheelchair Football League Tournament

GLASA is proud to have a team in the USA Wheelchair Football League (USAWFL) made possible by the Bob Woodruff Foundation NFL grant. Formed in 2020, the 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, dedication, and resilience. GLASA will host the first tournament of 2022 where seven USAWFL teams from across the country will compete. Teams include Birmingham, Buffalo, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Dallas, Milwaukee and of course Chicago’s GLASA Bears!

Where: College of Lake County (19351 W Washington St, Grayslake, IL 60030). Volunteers will park in lot 9 and report to Building F. Attached you will find the map of College of Lake County that highlights where the event will take place. The back up location in case of adverse weather is the Canlan Sports Complex in Libertyville (1950 US-45, Libertyville, IL 60048).

When: August 13-14th

**There will be a small training session done by GLASA staff and officials on how to work the equipment and/or provide a more detailed explaination on the task being performed to aid volunteers**
