Power Soccer [186]

7/25/10: The Northeast Disabled Athletic Association (NDAA) held a Power Soccer clinic last weekend at UVM's Patrick Gym. The newly formed Vermont Chargers played CNY United from Syracuse, New York.

Representatives from the US Power Soccer Association (USPSA) were on hand to give pointers and help new players get in the game. World-class French player Jerome "Pika" Durand (David Beckham of the Power Soccer world) and Syracuse's 19 year old Peyton Sefick will be competing in the 2011 Power Soccer World Cup held in France.

Back on the East Coast, The Vermont Chargers are hoping to find more players so they can scrimmage locally.
