Powerchair Football Canada

Powerchair Football (or Power Soccer) is a fast paced, competitive sport for persons with disabilities of all ages who use electric wheelchairs. Our sport has been played since the early 80′s and is currently being played here in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. The sport previously had many different forms played all over the world, but recently countries met with the objective of developing an international set of rules. These new rules were modeled after the French and English style of play, which is more open and requires more passing. Players use powerchairs equipped with footguards to pass, shoot and carry the ball with the objective of scoring the most goals. The sport is played in a gymnasium. Each team is allowed 4 players on the court at one time including the goalkeeper.
