Power Chair Soccer

Tonight I had a wonderful opportunity to play Power Chair Soccer.  It was the first time I had done this in a power chair.   It reminded me of being a kid playing wheelchair soccer, except back then we played in a non-motorized chair. 

Unfortunately the battery in the chair was almost out of juice, so they let me play for fun as a goalie in my regular wheelchair. 

At one point, while in my regular wheelchair I started heading for the ball that was coming toward the goal.  Another guy was headed in my direction trying to get the ball too.   We hit the ball simultaneously, and my back tires went up in the air.  It was hilarious! 

All in all, it was a fantastic evening and I look forward to more opportunities in the future. 

Since I don’t have a picture of me playing, I decided to use a picture of my dog.
