EVENT: 2017 FIPFA World Cup
EVENT DATE: Jul 05, 2017
My name is Case Calvert and I am proud to call myself an athlete. As a World Cup champion, sports have always been a part of my life, even when opportunities to compete were limited. I was limited by my disability or so I thought. I fell in with the life changing sport of Power Soccer. It fulfilled my dreams, love of sports and competition, and opened the world. It has taught me what it takes to: develop teamwork; set goals; win with class and lose with grace; and succeed against all odds. The last ten years of soccer developed me into a confident, and successful man on and off the court. I’ve been all over the country and the world but it’s been the friendships and the memories that has the most impact.
I am proud to announce that I have been selected as a member of the United States National Power Wheelchair Soccer Team. In October of 2011, I traveled to Paris, France, to represent the United States and compete in the Power Wheelchair Soccer World Cup. We brought home the gold, defeating England in the championship game! I was so grateful for the opportunity to compete, and am counting on each of you to allow me to experience another World Cup in 2017 and go for the gold-again!
