Power Hockey

Power Hockey is a hockey game that young electric wheelchair users can play which has been developed by Greenbank Sports Academy over the past 10 years.

Children play the game with their non-disabled friends, coaches and siblings and often, because disabled children use an electric wheelchair on a daily basis, they are much better players, which is a great way to boost self-esteem and confidence.

Power Hockey gives severely disabled children an opportunity to play a fast, contact sport for the first time. The sport is currently being developed in the Merseyside area, but the plan is to develop the game into a national / international sport.
