POWER SOCCER

Power soccer is a team sport  designed and developed specifically for power wheelchair users.   It is the first competitive sport which incorporates athletes with quadriplegia,multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and many other physical impairments. Since power soccer players cannot use their feet to kick the ball, a foot guard is attached to the front of the chair. Players then use their chairs to manipulate the ball. The sport is played on a standard-sized basketball court. Each team is allowed 4 players on the court at one time, including the goalkeeper. A match consists of two 20-minute periods. Power Soccer is played across the globe at every ability level.
