What is Power Soccer?

POWERSOCCER is soccer played by individuals who use powerchairs, with an attached customized footguard used to “kick” the soccer ball. This unique team sport that is played world wide has 4 players to a side including the goal keeper with two 20 minutes periods.

Powersoccer has been adapted for powerchair users with severe physical impairments such as Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, spinal cord injury, quadriplegia, Multiple Sclerosis, head trauma, stroke, and other disabilities. Anyone can play powersoccer including those who are trached and vented, use head control, chin control or foot control.

Sportability



Founded in 1976, SportAbility is a registered charity (1982) which provides physical activity programs for individuals with a disability across British Columbia, Canada. SportAbility offers programs in four sports including Sledge Hockey, Boccia, Power Soccer, and 7 A-Side Soccer at both recreational and competitive levels.

SportAbility is a non-profit, volunteer-driven association whose goal is to create a fun and safe social environment for athletes with a disability, who are either being introduced to an activity for the first time, or competing at an international level.

SportAbility is a multi-sport society that ensures and facilitates opportunities in physical activity and sport. We enable all British Columbians who have a physical disability to enhance their quality of life by being active in their community and beyond.
