On Sundays, March 12th – May 21st, Power (wheelchair) Soccer will be returning to the North Country as an adaptive team sport. The North Country Storm, a team of Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC), will begin an 11-week season of practice and competition. “The Storm” is looking for both participants and volunteers to help with this activity. The team will practice at the Profile School gym in Bethlehem from 3 – 4:30PM.
Power Soccer is a team sport played by individuals with various disabilities, new players, youth and / or adult are welcome. No previous experience necessary. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of 4 power chair users attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in an attempt to score points on a goal. The game is similar to the nonstop action seen in a typical soccer game.
