Introducing the Hulmeville A-Team (All Abilities Team)

Hulmeville Soccer Club is proud to announce a new program for our Fall 2024 season: The A-Team (The All Abilities Team!) HSC has always been committed to serving our local young athletes and it has become increasingly evident to us that there is a need in our community. According to the CDC, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) occurs in 1 out of every 36 children. At HSC we feel strongly that soccer should be an experience every child gets to have, regardless of their ability or support needs. HSC is excited to work with our community’s Autism families to learn together and make soccer accessible for all! According to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, playing sports contributes to “increasing independence, developing self-esteem, and growing self-confidence.”

HSC welcomes children with Autism Spectrum Disorder aged 4-9 to register for our All-Abilities “A-Team” clinic this Fall! The program will take place for 8 weeks, Saturdays at 1:00 pm beginning September 7, 2024. The cost of the program is $75.

We are pleased to have a coaching staff ready to meet your child where they are in their development and their interest in soccer.  Our inclusive program will focus on supporting children with whatever adaptations they need as we learn to follow rules, play with peers, and most importantly, have fun! We require a parent(s) or an adult caretaker(s), as we do with all of our younger child programs, to stay with their child at the field at all times. We are looking for helpers!  We encourage you to become a part of their experience and help us learn what modifications we can make to our new program to make your child as excited for soccer as we are! To learn more about the program, please contact Bob King, VP, Board of Directors.

Keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page.  Registration will open June 1, 2024.  We look forward to meeting you and your exceptional child on the field this September!

    I think this is a wonderful opportunity. My son is not on the spectrum however he is an emotional child. I think that he would excel in his love for soccer with this opportunity.
