CP/PARA SOCCER

What is CP/Para Soccer? 

CP/Para Soccer is a stand up, adapted version of mainstream soccer. CP/Para Soccer is a scaled down version of the traditional game. The fields are shorter, the nets are smaller, and there are no off-sides. This sport is inclusive for all ages and is a great option for people with cerebral palsy, head injury, or other related physical disabilities to be active in sport.  

Interested in bringing CP/Para Soccer to your students, clients, participants, children, or athletes? SportAbility offers opportunities to try a sport for groups such as schools, clinics,  sport and corporate teams, and community events. Check out our Community Engagement page  for more information.
