Hey gang! Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite adapted sports. Power soccer!
Power soccer was created for athletes that use power wheelchairs. These athletes have a guard placed on the front of their wheelchairs to help them dribble, pass and kick the soccer ball.
The game is played on a basketball court with a large soccer ball. Each team has three players per side as well as a goalie.
The games are played in two periods. Each period is twenty minutes long. The teams switch goals after the first period.
A goal is scored when the soccer ball completely crosses the goal line in between the goal posts. Whichever team scores the most goals wins.
Just like soccer, there are free kicks, penalty kicks, corner kicks and penalties.
Power soccer is a terrific sport for athletes that use a wheelchair. Now that you know about the great game of power soccer get the word out.
