What is power soccer?
Played in power wheelchairs, power soccer is one of the most popular adaptive sports in the world. Even those with very limited physical abilities can participate and find great success. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four players attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in a challenging game similar to able-bodied soccer. Turnstone has offered power soccer since 2006.
Who is a power soccer athlete?
