Experience the Difference
SoccerGemz special needs program uses soccer as a vehicle to teach life skills to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities including but not limited to Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down Syndrome and more. SoccerGemz believes that every child deserves to be able to enjoy the fun and learning that comes along with participating in a sport. Your little gems with special needs should not be missing out on those experiences! Our special needs program is for children ages 18 months-8 years old and will focus on helping your little gem overcome their disabilities and learn the basic mental, physical and technical aspects of soccer by having fun.
A Fun & Beneficial Experience for Any Family
Our program utilizes fun games to help build up your child’s social skills, confidence, motor skills, coordination, self-esteem and overall fitness. Our coaches have experience working with children with special needs and are able to adjust to the pace that your little gemz need to make sure that everyone is learning and having fun while having patience, organization and a calming nature.
This activity can benefit your whole family because:
Our program offers a way for your child to be more physically active without becoming discouraged or overwhelmed with plenty of support from our coaches. This program will break down the games that we play at a slower pace and with more details so that your little gem has a better understanding. We recognize that understanding is key to learning and that some children need a little extra time to understand the game or get the hang of things and we offer that opportunity for your child.
