Power Soccer

What is Power Soccer?

Powerchair soccer has been described as “playing soccer in go karts!” by our athletes. Plastic or metal footguards are attached to the front of power wheelchairs to maneuver a giant soccer ball. It is a fast paced sport that requires teamwork and skillful driving, which helps to build power-chair skills, dexterity and hand eye coordination.
