West Pymble Football Club’s Special Needs Program is now in its thirteenth season. The program is specifically for children to adults aged 5 – 21 years with special needs, with the objective of creating a fun environment for everyone to improve their coordination skills and enjoy playing football.
As a rough guide, the outline each week is:
The first 15-20 minutes is a fun warm up;
For the next 30 – 40 minutes’ players will be split into small groups and will do 2-3 different training games/activities covering a range of different soccer skills and abilities;
The final 20 -30 is a match (usually two games – split on age/ability). Players can have a chaperone on the field to encourage them. However, our aim is for all players to be playing independently.
Players of all standards are encouraged to attend and participate to the best of their ability. The key requirement is to get some exercise and for everyone to enjoy themselves (players, parents/carers and siblings).
