Are you or do you know a soccer player with a disability? If so the Alberta Soccability Program offers a soccer first program to support your passion.
Please follow the link below for dates and the Spring Soccability Program registration form
Soccability will be hosted at two centres this Spring:
Further activities are planned throughout the summer including a return visit to FC Edmonton.
The program aims to develop a developmental and competitive pathway for soccer players with a disability, of all ages and abilities. The program tag describes itself as ‘the game with no borders’, emphasizing its focus of embracing all disabilities (physical and learning) then adapting the game to the player.
Coach John Clubb explains that the idea of the program is to encourage more players with a disability to join and help develop not only their skills but an important pathway for disability soccer.
Players should attend sessions in appropriate soccer uniforms (suitable clothing, footwear and mandatory shin guards). Also be considerate for refreshments and fluids to support the players participation.
Soccability coaches are specialists with an interest in not only coaching soccer, but also supporting players with a disability. All coaches will have undergone supportive training and mentoring to ensure the players are always made to feel welcomed and supported. If you are a coach who would like to challenge your development within disability soccer please contact John Clubb for further information
