Our "All Abilities" program has been recognized by Soccer Canada as a leading edge program. Our program experience and expertise have been shared many times through various platforms (webinars, workshops, conference presentations, literature) with numerous communities across Canada.
We want our athletes to have fun experiences and to feel comfortable demonstrating new skills. We want them to play, foster old and new friendships and we want them to want to come back to our program. We hope that their experiences with our program will assist with boosting confidence and encourage them to embrace physical activity and not fear it.
Through outreach, we are able to bring our unique All Abilities program into the community giving more para children and youth exposure to recreational activities and the benefits that come with that. We work to support other clubs in the coordination and implementation of the All Abilities program. The All Abilities outreach program has fostered new relationships within our community and offered programming to organizations that experience barriers to access. These community partnerships are important as they offer new experiences to children/athletes who would not be able to attend our program. In addition, these relationships generate new program ideas through partnerships/innovation.
