Power Soccer Tournaments at Bascom Community Center
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services’ Bascom Community Center’s Therapeutics Program hosted the Inaugural “Battle of the Bay” Power Soccer Tournament on March 10 and 11. Eight teams from the Bay Area, Southern California and Arizona competed for the title of the “Best Power Soccer Team.” Councilmember Raul Paralez welcomed the players and close to 60 spectators. The following weekend, five teams participated in the Winter 2018 Power Soccer Tournament. Harker School and San José State University volunteers helped ensure the event was a success. Power soccer is one of many wheelchair sport programs provided by PRNS’ All Access Sports & Recreation which focuses on skills and abilities rather than disabilities.
