The Football For All programme gives kids with Special Needs the opportunity to get regular football training and competition. The training they receive is delivered by qualified coaches. As well as regular training, children in Football for All clubs get the chance to play for their local club in regular Blitz’s against other Football for All clubs.
Last year the team played in a national tournament in Dublin, the Munster FA blitz in Mallow and local events in Killarney, Midleton, Limerick and Skibbereen. These kids would not get the opportunity to play for mainstream teams and it allows them to keep fit, develop and understand teamwork and more importantly develop social skills.
We had had a recruitment drive recently (http://issuu.com/douglaspost123/docs/douglaspost/0 )and have increased to over 30 kids each Saturday morning. The majority of our kids are on the spectrum. All the coaches are parents of kids with special needs so they have a great understanding of the needs of the children.
