The Game of Power Soccer

Power soccer is the most exciting and dynamic sport for athletes with disabilities using power wheelchairs.Power soccer is the most exciting and dynamic sport for athletes with disabilities using power wheelchairs. It is an extremely competitive sport that has been ongoing for more than 20 years, and is exploding locally, nationally and internationally.

This action-packed team sport combines the skill of the athlete with the speed and power of the wheelchair itself.

The game is played in a gymnasium using the boundaries of a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four attack, defend, and maneuver an oversized soccer ball using foot guards attached to the wheelchairs, in an attempt to score points on a goal.

Power soccer is a fast-paced sport in which the athletes display their passing, dribbling, defending, and goal-scoring skills individually and as a team. The game and rules are similar to the non-stop action seen in outdoor soccer with a few modifications to accommodate the use of the power wheelchairs.

Power soccer organizations Chris is involved with are the Bay Area Outreach and Recreation Program (BORP), United States Power Soccer Association (USPSA), and the Federation Internationale de Powerchair Football Association (FIPFA).
