Power Soccer is the fastest growing sport for power wheelchair users. The sport was originally developed in France in the early 70’s and was introduced to the United States in the early 80’s. Since then many countries created their own version of the sport which led to an international meeting in Paris, France 2005. It was the vision of the six countries that attended to create an international organization and unify the rules for international competition. The international organization, "Federation International de Powerchair Football Association" was born. This development led to the formal organization of the United States Power Soccer Association (USPSA) in 2006.

Sun Devil Power Soccer Club to Compete in 2014 MK Battery Premier Cup

Local athletes with disabilities set to compete for the 2014 USPSA National Championship.

MESA, AZ – For some of the power soccer athletes, this sport is their only chance at experiencing the spirit of competition.  For others, it’s a second chance at being a true athlete. Either way, this sport is changing the perspective of people with disabilities. If you want to see power soccer in person, the Sun Devil Power Soccer Club will be competing in the 2014 MK Battery Premier Cup tournament at Inspire Courts AZ in Mesa, AZ. The three-day tournament will be held June 26-28, 2014 and will feature the top power soccer teams from across the country.

Power soccer is a popular sport for people with disabilities and requires the use of an electric wheelchair. The game is similar to able-bodied soccer in the fact that players are trying to dribble a soccer ball with their chairs into a goal. The game is played on a basketball court with four players from each team on the court at a time. This sport is quickly becoming the world's fastest-growing adaptive sport, with teams being developed across the globe and even starting an official World Cup tournament.

The Sun Devil Power Soccer club is currently in the United States Power Soccer Association Premier Conference and is ranked among the top 10 teams in the country. There are five members on the squad, consisting of community members, current students and ASU alumni. This is the final tournament of the season for the Sun Devils; the club finished the regular season with a perfect 12-0 record and a first-place finish during the 2014 PowerBlast tournament this past March.

The Sun Devil Power Soccer Club was established in 2010.  The Mission of the power soccer club is to promote the adaptive electric wheelchair sport of power soccer on campus and the surrounding community. Their goal is to encourage participation among the community, both on and off campus.
