Participants have many different disabilities, although the majority of players have either Cerebral Palsy or Muscular Dystrophy. Mission Statement: To provide those who require an electric wheelchair for daily mobility, an opportunity to participate in a recreational environment that exemplifies the values of working together towards a common goal, and aims to boost its players' self-esteem and desire for competition.
