Indoor Wheelchair Soccer kicks off the AAASP sports year in August. Indoor Wheelchair Soccer is a fast-paced game that is easily played by students using either manual or power wheelchairs. The ball, which is a 10-inch rubber playground ball, is easier for children in the early stages of learning fundamental sports skills and enables them to achieve higher levels of confidence and success, therefore they are motivated to continue playing. The sport is played inside on a basketball court and many of the same skills required for wheelchair basketball are used in wheelchair soccer, such as learning to move, pass, dribble, shoot and pick up the ball. In wheelchair soccer, however, a player may use hands, feet or the wheelchair to move the ball. AAASP groups its indoor wheelchair soccer league into "A" and "B" divisions. Team placement is based on the make-up of the entire team and takes into account many factors, including the student's age, functional ability, and years of experience. The season ends with the state Indoor Wheelchair Soccer Championship tournament, where the best Division A and B teams from across Georgia compete for their respective championship titles.


Eligible participants, whose primary disability must be physical, are boys and girls ages 6 to 21 years and attending grades 1-12. They are able to walk unassisted, with devices, or use manual or power wheelchairs.
