Power Soccer and the North Georgia Screamin’ Eagles
ABT volunteers assisted the Screamin' Eagles in hosting a competition of the USPSA Southeastern League on January 18th, and the team is scheduled to host another Southeastern League event on March 14th at the North Hall Community Center. The event will feature SEPSL regulars like the Shepherd Center's Strikers,
Lakeshore Foundation's Power, Georgia Sting, and the Screamin' Eagles, but
will also welcome the Tidewater Piranhas from Virginia Beach, and the Tampa Crossfire all the way from Tampa Bay, FL. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us.
To remain competitive, like in NASCAR, teams must practice BUT they also must keep the latest and best equipment. The game of Power Soccer has changed in the last 2 sasons with the advent of the StrikeForce powerchair by Powersocccershop.com. These high performance power wheelchairs start at $7,700 and can cost as much as $10,000 for the add-ons that more serverely impaired athletes require. These high performance powerchairs are not covered by insurance, and only a few private foundations provide partial funding for disabled athletes, most importantly the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Mike Neville, the coach of the Lakeshore Power has built a similar powerchair for about half the cost of the StrikeForce, and the Screamin' Eagles are in consultation with Mike about such. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help us help the team purchase or build the new equipment required to compete in the higher conferences of the U.S. Power Soccer Association.
