Power soccer allows those with disabilities the opportunity to play the most popular sport in the world!
Power Soccer is the first disabled competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for people of all ages and genders who use a power wheelchair. Participants include people with quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, head trauma, stroke, spinal cord injury, and other disabilities.
Even if you have very limited physical abilities, you can participate and find great success. On the power soccer court, every athlete is equal!
Some players may walk between games while others use power chairs as their primary means of mobility. DASA Power Soccer Teams have athletes as young as five, as well as a number of older adults. Power soccer is played on a basketball court and each team is allowed 4 players on the court at one time (4 on 4). Soccer season is September-June.
- DASA SLSG Flames are the beginner team.
- DASA SLSG Firecrackers are the competitive intermediate team.
- DASA SLSG Cyclones are the competitive advanced team.
Using a Power Soccer Chair
A power soccer chair is a specially designed power wheelchair capable of going up to 6mph and is equipped with a front bumper guard used for dribbling, passing, and shooting an oversized soccer ball.
Just like its able-bodied counterpart, power soccer takes a great deal of strategy, coordination, and skill to become great. Typically, you will learn and play as a recreational sport first, then graduate to one of our competitive teams.
