ATLANTA – The United States Power Soccer Association (USPSA – www.powersoccerusa.net) will play two exhibition games right on the Medtrade Show Floor at the Georgia World Congress Center. Game #1 will take place on Wednesday, Oct 22, at 11:00 a.m., and game #2 will happen at 2:00 p.m.

Power Soccer is the first competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for power wheelchair users. Athletes’ disabilities include quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and many others. The game is usually played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four players attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in a skilled and challenging game similar to able-bodied soccer.
