Introduction to powerchair football

EPFA staff work with the Republic of Ireland delegation.

EPFA will provide a new country with an introductory package of equipment in order to begin playing powerchair football. EPFA staff will help the new country to set up the equipment, deliver a basic coaching session, introduce the laws of the game and provide guidance on the next steps the country can take to build powerchair football.

EPFA Development & coaching course


In this course, EPFA will meet with the National Organisation of Powerchair Football and other sporting and disability organisations, to discuss how to develop powerchair football, calling on their experience and examples from different nations.

They will then deliver the EPFA Coaching Powerchair Football course, covering theory and practical sessions to develop coaches’ knowledge of the game.
