Powerchair Football

4v4 (Summer Program)

Powerchair Football is a modified version of football/soccer for powerchair users. It is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court with a ball that is 1.5x the size of a traditional ball. There are two teams of four players (including the goal keeper). Players dribble and hit the ball around the court with a specially designed bull-bar that is mounted onto the front of their powerchair. It is a fast-paced and dynamic sport for spectators and players alike.

Powerchair Hockey

5v5 (Winter Program)

Powerchair Hockey is a modified version of floorball for powerchair users. The sport is played on an indoor basketball court and there are two teams of five players. A barrier surrounds the court which allows players to rebound the ball.
A light-weight plastic ball is used during play. Players with very limited range and movement can tape a plastic T-shaped stick to the front of their powerchair to hit the ball. Other athletes may use a light-weight floorball stick.
