History of Wheelchair Lacrosse
Ryan Baker and Bill Lundstrom met in San Diego in 2008. They were both athletes—they skied, played golf, competed in tennis, and participated in wheelchair races. Both men also had a desire to play a team sport, but were not satisfied with the typical options for athletes with disabilities. So they got some used lacrosse sticks and gear and gave it a try. They soon had several players coming out to throw the ball around and WLUSA was born. Ryan and Bill hosted the first wheelchair lacrosse camp in 2010 and spent much of the next decade traveling the country to grow the game.
