Power wheelchair soccer is the fastest growing sport in the world for athletes with disabilities using power wheelchairs. Various areas of the country have seen significant growth of the sport including Indiana, California, and Florida. The Boston Brakers hope to have the same type of success in promoting the sport here in Boston, as well as the surrounding New England area, in an effort to give power wheelchair users a chance to experience competitive sport and sportsmanship.
