All Abilities / Special Needs

The All Abilities soccer program offers all children and youth with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, within the Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area, an opportunity to learn and play the great game of soccer.

Every child deserves a chance to build lasting friendships, make memories and feel like they belong.  The All Abilities team strives for an inclusive environment where no child is noticed for their disability, rather, their enormous abilities shine.

Our program is fully inclusive, designed and adapted for children with any disability or level of behaviour.  Whether they use a wheelchair, walker or wear orthotics, or live with an intellectual, communication (ASD) or developmental disability, we provide support (1:1 as needed) and welcome all on the field.
