POWERCHAIR FOOTBALL

Powerchair Football is a team sport designed and developed specifically for electric wheelchair users. These participants include persons with quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, head trauma, stroke, spinal cord injury and other disabilities.

Capital Football has successfully run development days in Canberra along with the assistance of the Australian Powerchair Football Association and is now looking to implement more regular games and training sessions throughout 2021.
