Mission Statement

The North Carolina Electric Wheelchair Hockey Association (NCEWHA) and the Hotwheels Team are dedicated to providing a quality floor hockey program for people who use electric wheelchairs in their daily lives in the North Carolina area. Our game is called Powerhockey. Through Powerhockey we will educate the people of North Carolina on the abilities of disabled athletes.

Although we are a competitive program, winning on the scoreboard is only one of our goals. We want to reach as many people as possible, so that we can instill a positive attitude with a strong will for success. Through this effort, we will begin to change society’s views of people with disabilities from burdens to contributors in our society.

Description

Knowing that there are many organizations throughout the world that embrace people with disabilities by helping them financially and medically, part of the NCEWHA mission is to provide an avenue to help people with disabilities emotionally as well give them a physical activity in which to participate. The NCEWHA plans to start a league in North Carolina with teams competing annually. Currently, the league consists of the Carolina Fury (NCEWHA’s Tournament Traveling Team) based in Pikeville, North Carolina and the Hot Wheels Team out of Wilmington, North Carolina.

Young or old, male or female, athletics has the ability to build confidence in its participants. This is true for people with disabilities as well. The NCEWHA provides this experience to people with disabilities of all ages. The NCEWHA helps get people out of their homes and active in their community.
