All Abilities / Special Needs

The All Abilities soccer program offers children and youth with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, an opportunity to learn and play soccer.

Every child deserves a chance to build lasting friendships, make memories and feel like they belong.  The All Abilities team strives for an inclusive environment where no child is noticed for their disability.  It is a place where enormous abilities shine.

Our program is fully inclusive, designed and adapted for children with any disability or level of behaviour.  Whether they use a wheelchair, walker or wear orthotics, or live with an intellectual, communication (ASD) or developmental disability, we provide support (1:1 as needed) and welcome all on the field.

The Pickering Soccer Club’s All Abilities Program is at the forefront of development of not only soccer programs but also physical literacy programming, and recreation/socialization opportunities.
