THE FLAMING DEVILS
This program was started in 2015 to provide an opportunity for kids to play in a team that is inclusive, their is no grading and its open to kids of all ages with special needs that would struggle to play with one of clubs other football teams. Through our All Abilities program, we aim to provide a group sport that children of special needs are able to participate and enjoy whilst obtaining many of the benefits of being part of a team including structure, following certain rules, learning, sharing and celebrating with team mates.
Sessions are run every Saturday during the season (April to August) at Mackey Park. In addition the team meets up with other All Abilities sides across Sydney during the season.
Each session consists of a lot of ball skills with as little repetition as possible to maintain interest. A typical session would include work on balance, coordination and timing. Each session is designed so that we can apply to any child no matter what there ability is.
Our coach has been running the program for 3 years and has previous extensive football coaching experience.
The Association and FNSW do not charge for registration for All Abilities and likewise the club absorbs all costs (ground, playing kit, balls etc) therefore their is no charge for registering and enjoying the season. The player will need boots / trainers and shin pads and we can guide you on these if you are new to the sport
