What is Powerchair Football? Powerchair football is a competitive team sport for people with physical disabilities who use powerchairs for their mobility. The rules are similar to outdoor football with a few modifications. Players include people with quadriplegia, neuromuscular conditions, cerebral palsy, head injury, spinal cord injury and other disabilities. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four players use their powerchairs to attack, defend and spin-kick a 13 inch football in an attempt to score goals. Every powerchair has a guard to hit the ball. Requirements : All players
Need to be using a powerchair
Must be 8 years and over
