Boston Brakers win the Founders Conference Championship!

We at Boston Self Help Center have begun identifying sports in which individuals with greater physical needs can participate. Our hope is to turn this research into real and doable opportunities.

Our first such venture is power soccer. Power wheelchair soccer is the fastest growing sport in the world for athletes with disabilities using power wheelchairs. Various areas of the country have seen significant growth of the sport including Indiana, California, and Florida. The Boston Brakers hope to have the same type of success in promoting the sport here in Boston, as well as the surrounding New England area, in an effort to give power wheelchair users a chance to experience competitive sport and sportsmanship.

To learn more about power soccer, go to http://www.powersoccerusa.org or http://www.bostonbrakers.com. If you are interested in attending a session, send an email to jjwice@gmail.com. Please include your name and phone number.
