Summer is Coming and Soccer is Our NEW Sport for 2017

Special Olympics Ontario – Aurora is pleased to announce The Aurora Kicks F.C. inaugural season (2017) introducing athletes to the team sport of Soccer.

Soccer is possibly the world's most popular team sport and certainly one of Special Olympics' most popular sports. Played by athletes of all ages from juniors, through their teenage years and on into adulthood.

Soccer combines elements of cardiovascular endurance, motor skills of ball handling while improving agility and strength on both upper and lower body, while requiring little in the way of specialized equipment.

Soccer is the seventh sport now offered by Special Olympics Ontario – Aurora since its formation: Swimming, Basketball, Golf, Softball, Bocce and Rhythmic Gymnastics. This will add additional opportunity to Athletes within our community to train. Volunteer coaches are always needed.
For information about The Aurora Kicks or to inquire about volunteering to coach soccer contact Aurora Community Coordinator, Janet Mitchell by email; aurora.coordinator@specialolympicsontario.ca
