Sports is an essential programme for many members in MDAS. With sports, members are able to interact and form a deeper connection with each other through teamwork as well as communication when playing. At MDAS, 2 main sports are played – Power Soccer and Boccia.
Power Soccer is an internationally played sport that’s popular amongst people with mobility. The sport is played in on a standard-sized basketball court. Each team is allowed 4 players on the court at one time, including the goalkeeper. A match consists of two 20-minute periods. Because of the two-dimensional aspect of this game (players are typically unable to kick the ball into the air), artificial space has to be created around the players.
