CHAMPIONS PROGRAM

 

PROGRAM MANAGER: Nour Fathy nfathy@coastalfc.ca

​​

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Coastal FC is excited to offer an adaptive soccer program for children with disabilities. Coastal FC’s Champions Program is offered to boys and girls who are 7 to 18 years of age and is suitable for all participants with special needs. This program will be led by professional Coastal FC coaches and Big Buddy Volunteer Coaches who will provide a supportive and passionate environment for participants to have fun and develop their soccer skills.

 

Champions Program will have a primary focus on individual participation where each participant along with their “Home Support” are able to participate in different stations. Some of our exciting stations will include dribbling and relays, passing competition with targets, a shooting station to score as many goals as you can! Individuals can choose to stay at one activity for the duration of the session or move from one station to the next. Our main goal is to ensure that all members in the community have an opportunity to participate in their favourite sport!

These children require stability therefore if prior to the start of the program, you know that you will miss 4 or more sessions maybe this isn't the volunteer opportunity for you.
