WELCOME TO THE THUNDER ZONE
Power Soccer is the first competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for power wheelchair users. These participants include persons with quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, head trauma, stroke, spinal cord injury and other disabilities. Power Soccer combines the skill of the wheelchair user with the speed and power of the chair itself, to participate in an extremely challenging game similar to soccer. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four power chair users attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in an attempt to score goals. Power Soccer is a very active and growing sport, both nationally and internationally.
The Tampa Thunder Power Wheelchair Soccer team is Tampa's PREMIERE wheelchair soccer club. Founded in 2004, the Tampa Thunder has played in over 150 games and competed in over 25 regional and national tournaments since it's inception.
