Equipment

Parents! Has your child grown during the pandemic? Is their sports chair now a better fit for a younger sibling? Maybe it's time for a change. Do you have flat tires you don’t know what to do with? Has your chair been out of use for the better part of a year? Might be time for a tune up. Bring your chair (and your child) to our event and we will help with maintenance and swap out equipment for a better fit while you explore a bunch of wheelchair sports and have fun!

We'll also have equipment available for those who don't have their own sports chair! Please RSVP ahead of time to Ana so that we know how much equipment to bring. 

Please note that to participate in power soccer, participants WILL NEED their own power wheelchair. SportAbility will be providing the attachable power soccer guards. Contact Jade to learn more!
