Power soccer is a fast-paced game played using a power wheelchair, 13-inch soccer ball, and 4 players on each side. One player is the goalie, and the other 3 attack, defend, and spin-kick the ball down the field and in between two posts which make up the goal. Power soccer players have a wide array of conditions and abilities, and adaptations can be added to your power wheelchair that will allow you to participate. Come out, try something new, and learn about the unique rules about power soccer from the US Power Soccer Association coaches and what makes it different from other adaptive forms of soccer. There is an activity for everyone, and we want to get everyone involved in playing soccer in the best and most comfortable way for them.
