Power Soccer Open to all ages Power Soccer is the first competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for people of all ages and genders who use a power wheelchair. Power Soccer combines the skill of the person with the speed and power of the chair, to create a fun, competitive, and accessible opportunity to play the most popular sport in the world, soccer. Power Soccer rules are similar to outdoor soccer. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four athletes in power wheelchairs pass, dribble, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in an attempt to score goals. Footguards are secured to each wheelchair to maneuver the ball and provide safety for the player.
