Super kickers is a program to allow our special needs kids of the community to participate and learn soccer!!!

Super Kicker is a recreational sports program for children with intellectual, emotional, or physical disabilities. Super Kickers provides people with diverse abilities an opportunity to play soccer in a structured environment that is safe, fun, supportive, and inclusive. Super Kickers athletes are ages 5 to 14, with a disability including but not limited to: Intellectual Disabilities, A.D.D., Autism, Hearing Impaired, Sight Impaired, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorder and Spinal Bifida.
If you aren't sure if Super Kickers is a good fit for your athlete, please contact us.

The Super Kickers program is geared toward player development rather than competition. Each session is led by trained coaches and buddies who use individualize activities to engage all players based on their preferences and needs. And each player is assigned a buddy, who volunteers for the role. The buddies are students drawn from our local schools. Buddies work alongside players on their soccer skills while the player is engaged on the field. We often find that a special relationship develops between the players and their buddies.

No experience necessary. Our goals for Super Kickers are

 - Sense of belonging by being a part of a team
 - Improved self-esteem, fitness, social and soccer skills
 - Success based on individual ability
 - Fun!
The program allows participants to focus on their abilities, in an encouraging, safe & FUN environment.

Volunteer to Coach or Be a Buddy!

Coaches Needed!

Teams are led by volunteer parent coaches. Coaches and administrators have preferably taken formal USYS education and certification training that assists them in successfully delivering the program. In addition to providing coaching strategies and tactics specifically for children with special needs, the training identifies the traits of the most common disabilities and provides guidance on how to modify typical soccer practice activities so everyone can be successful.

Interested in being a buddy?

What is a buddy?
Each participant is assigned a volunteer, trained ‘Buddy’ who is typically a little older and neurotypical. This Buddy works with their player individually and makes sure they are safe, engaged, supported, and having fun. The player-Buddy relationship is maintained throughout the course of a season, resulting in strong interpersonal bonds and an establishment of trust and confidence that allows each player to achieve their full potential.

Volunteer Buddy Description:
>> Buddies can be in middle school or in high school.
>> Buddies should have an interest in helping a special-needs player learn how to play soccer.
>> Buddies do not need to have knowledge of soccer in advance of volunteering.
>> Buddies find that this is a wonderful rewarding experience for both players and volunteers!

Volunteer Buddy Time Commitment:

In order to provide consistency for our players, we ask all buddies to check their schedules (including game schedules) and commit to attend each session.
