In April 2018, Nova helped set-up and establish Frome Falcons Powerchair Football Club!
When: Twice a month on a Saturday, beginning the season in September 2019
Where: Frome Sport & Fitness Leisure Centre
Time: 1 - 3pm
Frome Falcons are the only powerchair football club in the whole of Somerset! The sport is fast and fun, with teams consisting of mixed ages, genders and disabilities. You don't need to be a daily wheelchair/powerchair user to play, and chairs can be provided for you at the sessions. They also compete in the South West Regional League.
What is Powerchair Football?
Powerchair Football is a sport for people with physical disabilities and is the only active team sport played in powerchairs. Using your bumper to hit or strike a large football, the game is played 4 v 4 on a basketball court and matches last up to 40 minutes.
Both Jenny and Alex have multiple years of experience coaching powerchair football and hold their Level 1 coaching certification in the sport. They cater for young and old, at the beginner and performance levels. Having coached at the National League, they are able to make training sessions fun, engaging and appropriate for the players. Also supporting are Will and Joel, two young, budding powerchair football coaches who are fantastic assistants at training sessions.
If you might be interested in playing, supporting or fundraising for the only powerchair football team in the whole of Somerset then please contact Jenny.
