Team sports can play a valuable role in the development of children. They help keep children active, promote agility and fitness and help build friendships with other children their own age.
However, such opportunities are not always available for all children, especially those with developmental, physical or learning limitations.
Macedon Blues Soccer Club is helping to change this by offering an all abilities non-competitive weekly training program for children and young adults aged 6 to 18 years old with additional needs or special needs. The sessions focus on learning how to play soccer in an inclusive, safe, supportive and friendly environment, and welcome all genders and skill levels.
All equipment is provided, including balls, bibs, cones and goals.
Term 2 of the program runs from Saturday 24 April to Saturday 19 June. Sessions will be held on Saturday mornings from 10:30am to 11:15am at the synthetic outdoor soccer pitch at East Doncaster Secondary College, located at 20 George Street, East Doncaster.
The program is $100 per term, which includes insurance, although a free trial session is available and encouraged. Please note, it is important that interested parents complete the Expression of Interest form on the club’s website prior to attending.
This program was made possible with the assistance of a Community Development Grant.
