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 Football 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.

Each year on December 3rd, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities promotes the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. The day raises awareness of the political, economic, social and cultural aspects disability affects people around the world.

More than 1 billion people in the world have a disability. At 15 percent of the world's population, persons with disabilities account for the world's largest minority. Furthermore, one out of every seven people is affected by disability.

Definition and Types
Disability is defined as a condition or function that is significantly impaired. Types of disabilities include:
* Physical impairment
* Sensory impairment
* Cognitive impairment
* Intellectual impairment
* Mental illness
* Chronic disease

Discrimination and Challenges
Some persons with disabilities live with multiple impairments. No matter what kind or how many impairments, the impact of disability on one's life is profound. In some disability sports there is a culture of bullying and abuse. Disability often leads to poorer health. Additionally, a person with a disability may attain lower educational achievements. As a result, disability may lead to fewer economic opportunities. Those with disabilities also have higher rates of poverty. Many countries and cultures shun persons with disabilities causing them to live in isolation.

For many years, discrimination, lack of access to services, lack of social support, and ignorance about disability have been some of the main challenges persons with disabilities face. Even in today’s age of inclusivity, these challenges continue.

Another challenge persons with disabilities face is access to adequate health care. In developing countries, sufficient healthcare is especially difficult to access. Often people with physical impairments are forced to go without the necessary mobility aids. They live without supports like wheelchairs and other mobility devices. Children can't attend school, and adults can't work. In some cases, a simple procedure or rehabilitation improves function. Sadly, in many developing countries persons with disabilities go without. As a result, their function often declines.
