Welcome to Just for Kicks 2024 – our All Abilities- Special Needs soccer program’s 12th season.

What is Just for Kicks

Ottawa City Soccer Club’s All Abilities soccer programs offer children and youth with intellectual and/or physical disabilities an opportunity to participate in specially designed recreational opportunities.

Every child deserves a chance to build lasting friendships, make memories and feel like they belong.  The All Abilities team strives for an inclusive environment where no child is noticed for their disability, rather, their enormous abilities shine.

Our programs are fully inclusive, designed and adapted for children with any disability or level of behaviour.  Whether they use a wheelchair, walker or wear orthotics, or live with an intellectual, communication (ASD) or developmental disability, we provide support (1:1 as needed) and welcome all on the field.

OCSC’s All Abilities programs are at the forefront of development of not only soccer and recreational programs but also physical literacy programming, quality participation and recreation/socialization opportunities.

Volunteer

This program runs entirely on volunteer power.  Please spread the word to others who may be interested in lending a hand. We strive to give our players 1:1 support out on the field.  There is no need to sign up in advance, simply show up as your schedule permits.  Volunteers of any age or ability are welcome.  High school students can receive volunteer hours toward their diploma (Grade 8 grads as well).  Several of our players can benefit from strong athletic and/or experienced volunteers, so please consider donating your time if you fit the bill.

If you or someone you know would like to be involved in this worthwhile program, please contact Shannon Mallen to receive email updates.

Notes:

  • Due to the medical needs and sensitivities of our players, we do not play in the rain.
  • Players need shin guards (mandatory) and proper footwear (running shoes are fine).
  • A parent/guardian or acceptable older sibling must be present to participate in all activities with the child on the field if required by the coach.
    Volunteers assist coaches by modifying soccer based activities to suit the intellectual and physical abilities of each participant. The soccer club strives to provide a 1:1 ratio of volunteers to children, however this is not guaranteed.
