Spring Adaptive Program

Program Overview

Chilliwack FC is pleased to offer an Adaptive Program that will allow children and youth (U6-U14) the opportunity to learn and experience soccer in a barrier-free environment.

This program is specifically designed for players with diverse abilities that would benefit from an adapted environment. The goal is to give players the opportunity to learn basic soccer skills and overall motor skills in a supported and small-scale environment while creating new friendships along the way.

Staff coaches will focus on creating opportunities for meaningful participation rather than competition.  

Parents are asked to remain present during sessions. Parents will have the opportunity to network with other families.  

The curriculum is based on the CSA Long-Term Player Development.  

This program may be taken in addition to, or instead of, traditional CFC programs.
