CAMPANA, Mateus Betanho et al. The Wheelchair Rugby: technical and tactical aspects and a guideline for development. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.4, pp. 748-757. ISSN 1980-6574. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1980-65742011000400020.
The aim of this case report was to describe tactical and technical aspects of Wheelchair Rugby and shows directions of how work them to achieve the better results for the team. The observational research methodology was used. Data collection was made from national and international teams between September/2008 to December/2009. The observations included training sessions and competition of nationals and international teams. In results we presented four technical elements: pass, reception, dislocation at the court and ball control. National and international defensives and offensives plays are also described. We conclude that the national teams have domain about technical and tactical skills however, the lack of game experience, lack of communication inside the court, and lack of knowledge about the rules are the weaker points that compromise team performance. We hope that this work helps researchers and coaches to continue the study and the actions in the court, contributing to the development of the modality in Brazil.
