About Power Soccer

BORP's Power Soccer Program started in 1988 and was the first power soccer program in the USA. During that time we have provided hundreds of powerchair users with opportunities to participate, compete and excel as athletes.

We invite you to support BORP Power Soccer by registering to play in the Poker Slam and/or by making a tax-deductible donation of money or prizes (for the poker tournament or the raffle). All proceeds from the 2017 BORP Poker Slam Fundraiser and Social benefit BORP's Power Soccer athletes who will be defending their national championship title in 2018. The money raised helps defray the considerable equipment and travel expenses.

Please spread the word and bring your friends!

See you at the Slam!
