Powersoccer is an exciting sport played by individuals with many different types of disabilities. Anyone who uses a power wheelchair is eligible to play. Our sport has been played since the late ’70s and is currently being played here in BC, Quebec, the United States, Brazil, Australia, Europe and Asia.
Players use powerchairs equipped with footguards to manoeuvre a 13-inch soccer ball around other players with the objective of scoring the most goals to win the game. The sport is played in a gymnasium. Each team is allowed 4 players on the court at one time including the goalkeeper.
