When using a power wheelchair and you want to play a sport, Power Chair Football is for you. Power Chair Football is the most popular sport for power wheelchair users around the world.

The sport was created in France during the late 70's. With steady growth, it's played in over 25 countries, with more joining each and every year.

Power Soccer is played on a basketball court with four players per team, a goalkeeper and three attackers/defenders. Each player is equipped with a metal or sturdy plastic foot guard attached to the front of the chair, athletes move the chairs and use the foot guard to pass and shoot the ball.

All About Ability Podcast with Kieran Burns
I’ve waited a long time to tell the story that started a downfall of which took me me years to pick myself up from. It felt like a lifetime trying to get those words out even today. I lost a group of friends I considered Family and coaches I admired because I was seen as less than, unable simply for being a wheelchair user. At the age of 15 I did not understand it and the questions I was asking myself weren’t why me? What have I done? But more so a voice in my head that screamed this is your fault because you can’t walk, fix it or live in misery, you’ll never be good enough for anything or anyone. I lived with that thought for many years leading to alcohol abuse, severe depression and anxiety. There wasn’t enough drink or drugs in the world that could numb how much I hated myself and I’ll never be able to fully put that into words. At that time I recall going to a Powerchair football training session just a couple hours after seriously considering suicide and getting compliments on how happy and smiley I seemed that night. I say to anyone reading this, whatever the situation is, wether it’s sport, your social group or any sort of group activity - INCLUDE. that person you think nah don’t invite them they are boring they never say much, INVITE THEM. Our culture promotes insulting others more than it does to put your arm round someone. I challenge you not to join in on tearing someone apart when they aren’t there but to be the one who has the guts to go out their way to become that persons friend because you know they need it. Be the difference maker, change the game and better the mindset of those around you. No one had any idea how bad I was and My journey could have easily ended right there BUT it didn’t and I’m here to tell you it can be done. You can get through it. To the kid who eats lunch by themselves at school, your not alone. to the kid who loves sports but doesn’t get picked for all the wrong reasons, your not alone. To everyone carrying something and pretending to be someone else just to get through to the next day, your not alone. It can and WILL be beat, better days are coming sooner than you think I promise. We’ve lost enough wonderful lives through this world making people feel they can’t be themselves, they can’t say the things that are getting them down. Start having real conversations and do everything you can to make your friends and family feel comfortable to tell you anything, even if it’s a stranger you can tell is struggling. Because the saying it’s nice to be nice isn’t just some catchphrase, it saves lives. Anything nice anyone said or done for me particularly at that time would help a wee hour here and there go by without feeling miserable, the smallest of things and that person would have absolutely no idea how much their wee nice words in that moment helped me. It’s nice to be nice because together if we truly change our approach and have the courage to speak up for one another more people can live a happy life and we can end all stigma surrounding mental health. I hated myself once, today I look in the mirror and love what I’m about inside and out, I say this to tell you, although right now it seems impossible, nothing is and one day you too can love yourself, not in an arrogant way but in a way that gives you peace of mind. let’s change this whole thing for the better because what really matters when it’s all said and done is how you made people feel. The feeling you left them with is all that will be remembered so make that feeling a good one. Change doesn’t happen by you sitting on the sidelines, pick whoever you can off the floor while on your own journey and leave the world knowing you made it a better place. Don’t wait till tomorrow, reach out to everyone you can TODAY. I want to hear your comeback story from the dark place you are in right now, it is going to be one of a kind❤️

🚨Today I launch the Tour of Social Distance 🚨 With music venues still closed and conventional touring all but impossible I have decided to bring the music to you, (safely of course) with my 🚨 Tour of Social Distance 🚨. This is a uniquely interactive tour where the venues are your gardens, back yards and outdoor spaces. The tour poster is blank, but for the 10 days in August I’m asking you to fill it as I take to the road and you literally will get to tell me where to go. The 10 days will be from August 20th to August 29th. If you’d like to host a show leave a comment below with your town, city, village or area. I’ll then plot a route around the country picking people from each area at random. As I’m sure you’re aware I can be bribed with various types of biscuits and monster munch 😉 This will be an unconventional tour to match these unusual times. The tour will be created by you and there will are no rules apart from the one’s that keep us safe from the virus, hence the name the tour of social distance. The show must go on and my aim is to spread a little cheer as we move forward but always in a safe and sensible way. The idea was sparked by Margaret from Ireland 🇮🇪 who we’ve all come to know from the live sessions. Like a lot of people Margaret has been shielding for health reasons. She’d love to come and see a live show but that’s just not possible at the moment so I thought it was time to take the music to Margaret. So there’ll be one extra date on the tour poster in Skibbereen. The only thing powering this tour is you, so the tip jar will be open to raise funds for fuel and custard creams to get me from place to place and gig to gig and if there’s not enough cash in the pot we won’t get to the next destination. So there it is…the Tour of Social Distance…bringing my music (safely) to your doorstep. Oh I might need a camper van if anyone has one spare! The adventure begins...come with me Covid Rules for hosts: • Up to 30 people (depending on the size of garden and ability to safely Socially Distance bubbles). • Stagger arrival & leaving times to avoid unnecessary contact with people outside your bubble. • Make sure there is a two-metre distance between bubbles (a bubble can be two households) and a 3-metre distance between the artist & the audience. • Have hand washing or hand sanitizer facilities available. • Provide wipes to clean any surfaces touched eg door handles, toilets & sinks, and provide paper towels to dry hands. • Advise people to bring their own chairs/drinks/glasses etc
