Welcome to the home of the Australian Powerchair Football Association. APFA is the governing body for the sport of powerchair football in Australia.
What is powerchair football?
Powerchair football is a modified version of soccer for the users of electric wheelchairs. Athletes pass, dribble and spin-kick an oversized soccer ball around a basketball court as they try to score that winning goal. It’s a tactical game that involves skill, team work and communication and is played on the world stage.
Who can play?
Anyone who uses an electric wheelchair for everyday mobility can play powerchair football. That includes boys AND girls, young AND old. Athletes have a wide and varied range of disorders including muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy and cerebral palsy to name a few. As long as you can drive your chair safely, anyone can play!
Strive. Dream. Persevere.
