Description:

power Soccer is Specifically Designed for the Daily Power Wheelchair Users. the Reason These Athletes Are in Power Wheelchairs is They Generally Have Very Limited Upper Body Strength or Do Not Have the Ability to Maneuver a Manual Wheelchair. Manual Chair Sports Are Prominent in the Disabled Community, but There Really Was Not a Competitive Team Sport That Someone in a Power Chair Could Play. Power Soccer Uses the Power of the Wheelchair to Spin, Pass and Kick a 13" Soccer Ball to Their Teammates in Order to Score Goals.

our Mission with the Uspsa is to Reach out to All Power Wheelchair Users to Educate Them on the Opportunities of Playing Power Soccer Through Holding Clinics, to Validate the Game Through Certified Officials, Typically Ussf Certified Referees, Who Are Now Trained in Our Sport. the Laws of the Game Are Aligned with the Outdoor Running Game with a Few Adaptations.

the Uspsa is About Opportunity and a Celebration of the Players’ Abilities. the Power of Power Soccer is About Creating an Atmosphere Where These Athletes Learn Life Skills That Allows Them to Become Contributing Members of Society. Power Soccer Removes and Pushes Back Some Barriers That Are Self Created or Perceived or Perhaps Imposed by Parents of Children with Disabilities. Many of These Athletes Through Much of Their Lives Have Been Told, “i’m Sorry but You Can’t Do That” or “i Will Do That for You or with You.” Power Soccer Allows the Players to Compete Totally Independent Without Anyone but Themselves and Their Fellow Teammates. This is a Great Revelation to Many That Play This Sport. Many for the First Time Leave Their Parents and Siblings on the Sidelines and Discover This Great Independence and Freedom.
