Did you ever wish you could be on a team?

Power soccer is the only team sport especially designed just for power chair users.

The game requires skilled power chair maneuvering and strategic teamwork as you "dribble", pass and shoot the ball into your competitors goal.

 


A Power soccer team is comprised of 4 players.  Usually Power soccer is played on a basketball court, but we will be playing outdoors enjoying the summer weather.  You will learn to set picks and roll,set screens, and make cuts to the goal awaiting a pass from a teammate to shoot and make a goal! From powerful wheelhouse corner kicks, to the fine chair control needed to pass the ball, there is plenty of challenge and fun in this game.

DO I NEED A SPECIAL CHAIR?

At the recreational level, "Foot Gaurds" are attached to the front of your personal Power Chair and are removed between practices.  Whether  you drive your chair with a joy stick, or if you use a head control, you can play Power Soccer. Elite and high competitive players use specially designed power chairs to play the game. They have a lower center of gravity and have quicker speeds. To keep the play "Fair", the speed of the chairs is standardized before competition.

 NEW THIS YEAR.     Foot Guard Fitting.

Once you have registered we will make arrangements to met with you before the start of the summer session to get you foot guard adjusted and fitted to your chair. Each player will be assigned a foot guard customized to fit their chair. So you can get out on the court with ease.
