How E-Soccer began, and what to expect.

E-Soccer is both a physical and social experience.

An all-volunteer, inclusive soccer program where kids with typical and special needs participate alongside each other.

Dedicated to empowering children of all abilities, E-Soccer’s inclusive environment promotes leadership as well as social, character, and athletic development for all kids in an individualized manner. Children are taught to learn from one another.

A bit of history

The inception of E-Sports began during an afternoon car ride in April, 2000 with two friends talking. One, a dad of two young boys with special needs, and the other, a close friend with a lifelong passion for soccer. The car ride and discussion that day would mark the birth of a pioneering inclusive sports program for kids both with typical and special needs.

What to expect

A typical E-Sports session is filled with fun physical activities, and is a great opportunity to connect with other parents and volunteers. Here’s what you can expect when you arrive.

Checking in

Upon arrival, find your location’s coordinator. They’ll check your registration and answer any questions.

Find your age group

E-Soccer sessions are grouped by age range. Kids under 5 must be accompanied by a parent.

Drills and activities

E-Soccer sessions begin with warmups, then move onto drills and games before finishing with a scrimmage.
