The Gymnasium at the Community & Recreation Center will be closed for annual maintenance from 10/21 through 11/4. The new wood floor requires an annual re-coat and we will be adding new pickle ball lines to the floor. There will be times when there is no open gym available due to scheduled activities in the auxiliary gym.

What is Power Soccer? Power soccer is the first competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for power wheelchair users. Athletes' disabilities include quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and many others. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four players attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in a skilled and challenging game similar to able-bodied soccer. The USPSA is the governing body for Power soccer in the United States. Browse the USPSA website for more information on Power Soccer: https://www.powersoccerusa.org/
