What is E-Sports?

An Inclusive sports program partnering typical and special needs kids participating alongside each other in various sports and activities.

Our mission statement

 

Exceptional Sports (E-Sports) is a fully inclusive program dedicated to empowering kids of all abilities to reach their full athletic and social potential.

 

The “E” in E-Sports stands for “exceptional” because we believe all people, both with typical and special needs, are exceptional. The “E” also implies “education”, reflecting our mission to keep learning and growing as we serve this community of families.

Creating the right “E-nvironment”

 

E-Soccer’s inclusion methodology promotes leadership as well as social, character, and athletic development for each child in an individualized manner. We value building inner character traits such as patience, perseverance, selflessness, courage, and commitment.

Our philosophy

Building character is more important to the developing athlete than simply teaching the motor skills and game knowledge for a sport.

Inclusive training

It’s beneficial for the participating kids to be trained in an environment where there are a wide array of strengths and challenges.

Valuing teamwork

We aim to build an environment where effort and cooperation are valued over simply skill performance and personal success.

The real winners

The “winner” of any E-Sports activity is the participant who strives to make the group successful and not just themselves.

The “Magic” for kids with special needs

 

Building friendship through inclusion

Our philosophy – No child is left behind or left out of our practices.

We reshape/re-frame what makes a successful sports program for kids.

Coaches, typical developing children, and children with special needs will all come to the program with a wide array of expectations.

We teach that success in E-Soccer is defined by making everyone in the group successful, not just themselves.

We must help kids overcome the intimidation factor!

Friendships forged on the E-Soccer field make a lasting difference for kids with special needs – typical friends to champion them and to be a big brother/big sister through formative school years!

The “Magic” for kids with typical needs

 

Developing character and leadership

Filling the Gap

E-Soccer fills a gap in character education and training that is not often addressed in typical schools and athletic programs. For all coaches and children involved, the inclusive environment trains special qualities of heart and character: empathy, compassion, leadership, & selflessness.

Leadership Opportunity

This experience for these young coaches provides a special flavor of community involvement that will prepare them for leadership roles in high school, college, and on into their professional lives.
