Just For Kicks Soccer for Special Needs Children -Thursday nights for the Summer only
June 22, 2017
In Partnership with Around the Campfire,( a socialization Group for children with special needs) Just For Kicks offers children with special needs an opportunity to develop social skills and soccer skills. Children have the opportunity to be on a team and play a game each week.
What is Just for Kicks?
Children ages 5-18 with developmental disabilities can get active and have fun while learning soccer-related skills. Activities are tailored to suit the intellectual and physical abilities of each child. No athletic experience required. Watch from the sidelines while your child makes friends and participates in a lively summer pastime.
This program runs entirely on volunteer power. Please spread the word to others who may be interested in lending a hand. We strive to give our players 1:1 support out on the field. There is no need to sign up in advance, simply show up as your schedule permits. Volunteers of any age or ability are welcome. High school students can receive volunteer hours toward their diploma (Grade 8 grads as well). Several of our players can benefit from strong athletic and/or experienced volunteers, so please consider donating some tome if you fit the bill.
If you or someone you know would like to be involved in this worthwhile program, please contact Shannon Mallen at JustforKicks@OttawaCitySoccer.com to receive email updates.
