The wheelchair curling program began in the U.S. in the 1990s. The sport relies upon skill and strategy with minor rules modifications from the original sport.
The World Wheelchair Championship began in 2002 and the sport was included as a medal sport in the Paralympic Winter Games for the first time in 2006.
The 2016 national team will be selected Nov. 5-8 at individual tryouts in Wausau, Wis. The 2016 world wheelchair championship will take place Feb. 21-28 in Lucerne, Switzerland.
