The Ohio PowerHockey League, a division of the U.S. EWHA, begins play in 2017. The OPHL is the first organized electric/power wheelchair-only hockey league in Ohio. Teams will be created and battle for the regular season title and top seed in the playoffs. Join us as we launch the inaugural season of the OPHL!
PowerHockey is wheelchair hockey specifically for persons requiring the use of an electric (power) wheelchair during daily life. Power wheelchair users have commonly been excluded from competitive sports because most people believe they are just too physically weak. PowerHockey proves that thought wrong. National organizations/events such as Paralympics and Special Olympics (which deals with mental disabilities) have NO team sport opportunities for power wheelchair users. Manual wheelchair users have many sports opportunities, such as basketball, hockey, softball, football, racing and rugby to just name a few.
