CP soccer is hugely popular in England and Australia where there are teams in most major cities. By building a league here, the program is the first to provide these kids with a chance to play on a competitive level with teams around the country. They are also opening the path for them to play at a higher level nationally. Ultimately, they will become a feeder program to the US National Paralympic Soccer Team. And indeed some of the players are heading in that direction!
CP Soccer follows the same participation guidelines set out by the International Paralympic Committee for 7-a-side football. All participants must have cerebral palsy, stroke, hemiplegia, or traumatic brain injury which affects their motor coordination yet still enables them to run and kick a ball.
Ages 8-18, girls and boys are welcome. No previous soccer experience is required. This program is free, and financial assistance is available for traveling to the venue. Please contact CP Soccer on the website for details.
