Courage League Sports is a non-profit adaptive sports and recreational program that offers year-round programming for children and adults who aren’t able to go full speed due to a physical, cognitive or emotional disability. By adapting the pace, equipment, or nature of an activity, our programs can provide a safe and accessible environment where participants can go at their own speed.
Courage League’s licensed soccer program provides you a complete adapted program. This includes a complete lesson plan for a season of soccer, along with adaptations for all abilities whether they are challenged with physical, cognitive or emotional challenges.
Our programs have been researched and tested to be effective and safe options for all participants along with a comprehensive training guide for your program staff. Training includes disability awareness, behavior management and program implementation.
Our soccer program offers your season a playbook for effective practices and games for your special population. We recommend 4-6 week seasons, meeting once per week with 30 minutes of skills/drills followed by 30 minutes of game play. We provide recommendations for dividing groups by ages/abilities, group size along with adapted game play ideas.
Bringing adapted sports into your community provides additional opportunities for those living with special healthcare needs. By offering adapted programs, your community becomes more inclusive, opportunity for community volunteers and inclusion.
