Southeastern League Logo

The North GA Screamin' Eagles hosted it's 2nd and final Power Soccer tournament of the 2016/17 Season in the USPSA Southeastern League on May 20, 2017 at the East Hall Community Center in Gainesville, GA. The team held a Referee clinic on 01/14 at the North Hall Community Center certifying several new referees.

10 Year Anniversary logo of the U.S. Power Soccer Association
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the U.S. Power Soccer Association, of which the Screamin' Eagles have been a member of since inception. To remain competitive, like in NASCAR, teams must have the best equipment possible. The game of Power Soccer has evolved dramatically in the last 10 years, and for teams to contend for a Championship they must obtain high-performance power wheelchairs, or build them. More and more teams are opting for the StrikeForce powerchair manufactured by Powersocccershop.com, but the price of one ranges from $7,700 to $10,000+, and they are not covered by any insurance company. Needless to say, acquiring this type of powerchair is difficult for athletes with disabilities.

The Disabled athletes of the North Georgia Screamin' Eagles struggle to come up with the money to compete and travel, and they need your help in getting new Powerchairs. ABT serves as the fiscal sponsor for the Team, and all donations made to the team are tax deductible. Please consider making a donation to help us help the team acquire the equipment needed to compete for a Conference Championship next season.
