Inclusive Soccer

Today the Public Affairs Section met with representatives of Powerchair Football Argentina and Jerry Frick, professional player for Power Soccer, to coordinate future joint actions. The Powerchair Football foundation operates in Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Mar del Plata and Rosario to develop different training activities and training to develop football in motorized wheelchairs. The principle objective of this foundation is to integrate people with mobile disabilities into the sport through social inclusion and by creating new bonds and friendships.

American player Jerry Frick traveled to Buenos Aires to host a clinic for Argentine players, teaching new techniques and encouraging them to continue practicing the sport, which is growing in the country and the region. The Powerchair Football Foundation, as a result, is focusing its efforts on developing an Argentina league and continuing to offer opportunities for improvement and exchange.
