Adaptive Soccer

SFC Adaptive Program

SFC Adaptive Program is the vision SFC Directors, Rob Bura and Bob Samra and it is supported by SFC.  The program opens up the game of soccer to any boy or girl who does not have the opportunity to participate in organized soccer.  The coaches are trained by Special Olympics BC. 

Why do we need an Adaptive Program?  So that every kid can know the rewards of playing on a team.  It brings a sense of accomplishment and sheer joy to the kids who otherwise would have to sit on the sidelines.  In the program, everyone comes away a winner!

  • Quality instruction with caring and trained coaches
  • Skills development
  • Great outdoor exercise
  • Safe non-competitive environment
