- A power wheelchair is necessary to participate in the sport. Rear-wheel, Mid-wheel, or Front-wheel drives are all acceptable. Front-wheel drives, however, offer better maneuverability (faster turns) compared to rear-wheel drives.
- Since power soccer is fast-paced, it is recommended that standard footrests should be used if the chair is equipped with expensive power-elevating footrests.
- Soccer guards, or a specially designed bumper, are temporarily attached to the footplates of the chairs to help in maneuvering the ball, protecting the athletes' feet and to prevent damage to wheelchairs.
- Players may use head protection, such as a bicycle helmet. Bumpers and helmets are sometimes provided by adaptive sports groups.
