Event Details

Children with ASD, ages 3-18, are invited to attend 10-weeks of soccer with the Waterloo Stars in Waterloo.  Siblings, ages 3-18 are also invited to join in on the fun!

 

Waterloo Stars is an adaptive program for children ages 3-18 to have a positive experience on a soccer team. 

 

Autism Ontario will have full and private use of indoor field for 1 hour weekly. 

 

Children will go through warm up exercises, break out into skills training and then end with a short game.  We take cues from the child, siblings and parents and activities can include balancing balls, Frisbees, volleyballs, softer balls, hula hoops, smaller nets, etc.  It can be a very diverse hour but it is an hour of physical activity.
