Dear Members of the USPSA,

Within the past 48 hours an unprecedented decision was made by FIPFA to ban the Strike Force chair for international competitions due to a violation of Law 4 holding or trapping the ball near the rear wheel. We have all had time to vent and voice our opinions on the outrage of this decision; it is time to address the way forward to allow those players who have been preparing to compete in a World Cup qualification in three weeks a chance to compete in the equipment they have practice in to play.

The manner and process surrounding this decision are clearly in question however in the interest of the players, the USPSA has submitted a proposal to the world members to consider. I have asked the Zone Presidents to call for an emergency meeting to consider, support and present this proposal to FIPFA for their action in time for the competition in Ireland. While we do not agree with the interpretation of the chair holding or trapping the ball, in the interest of all concerned and in the best interest of the sport, we will acquiesce and agree to disagree to allow forward progress. Below is the proposal submitted:

 

The United States presents the following proposal for the member countries to consider supporting:

Letter from the President

Dear Members

It has been an exciting year of competition now coming to a head at the Conference Cups. The MK Battery Conference Cup Series road begins in Indianapolis with Champions and Presidents Cups June 13 - 15.

We will be holding our Annual General Meeting in Indianapolis on June 13 at the Sheraton Hotel. At that meeting we will elect new officers: President, Secretary, and Executive Vice President. We will also be considering some important changes to the Bylaws and Constitution. The information has now been sent out to Team Representatives, and I would like to thank those of you who responded to my email that we should move forward with the meeting. I would like to appeal to all of you to make an effort to attend this meeting. You can conference in and be present at the meeting. Your attendance is needed to move legislation forward.

How did you hear about power soccer?
I heard about it through the MDA camp and when I got to Ball State my freshman year.

What have you learned since playing power soccer?
I have learned how to be a better teammate, a better person, and a better voice for my team.

What do you enjoy most about power soccer?
I enjoy when a play turns into a goal. Just the commitment from everybody to make sure the play runs smoothly, so that in the end, we put a point on the board, and I really love to play defense and love to frustrate the offense.

What would you like to achieve as an athlete?
I would like to achieve a championship, as everyone does. However, I would also like to achieve the praise by my teammates and by the opponent. I also want to let people see that I am trying my 100% best.

What would you say to other people that might be interested in trying power soccer?
I would say that this is a great way to feel...

What got you interested in power soccer?
I had back surgery for my scoliosis and my surgeon asked me if I have ever heard of power soccer. They told me all about it and I thought it was amazing and it would let me do something fun. The first time I tried power soccer I knew that I wanted play right away.  I have been with the Tampa Thunder for five years now and plan to play power soccer for a long time.

What has power soccer done for you?
Power soccer has let me do things I never thought I could do before. I've traveled to many different places and met new people. I used to be really shy and had stage fright but ever since I have started playing power soccer I have broken my barrier of being shy.

What is your favorite thing about playing power soccer?
My favorite thing about playing power soccer is that it gives me something to do instead of playing video games all day. It's really intense and competitive and at all the big tournaments...
