AYSO Region 425 has a program for children with special needs who attend regular school and want to be part of our House League Teams.
Our Soccer Buddy Program pairs high school students with these children
so that they can have a Buddy to help them at practice and games.
Our Soccer Buddy Program currently has children who have sensory
disabilities that involve sight and hearing loss, children with Attention Deficit Disorder and functional levels of Autism. All of these children spend at least 30% of their school day in a regular classroom. The AYSO Soccer Buddy Program enables them to socialize with their peers outside of school and strengthen their large motor skills in a positive and supportive environment.
If you believe your child may be interested in this program, please fill
out the Soccer Buddy Placement Form and attach it to your registration
form. There is no additional fee for this program. You will be contacted by the program coordinator.
