Special Needs Soccer (VIP Program)

VIP Special Needs Program

AYSO VIP Program provides a quality soccer experience for children whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams. We recognize that everyone needs to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance. The VIP program offers that acceptance and carries the philosophy of "Everyone Plays®" to new heights - giving everyone a chance to play. The VIP program offers children ages 4-18 with special needs the chance to: Play Soccer - Meet Friends - Have Fun
