That's right. Our first All Abilities Book will be coming out soon - just in time for the Holidays!

Anusha Broekhuyse joined us as a volunteer at the height of the pandemic, assisting with our virtual programming. She then brought her love of our program to the field and joined us this summer as a coach.

Anusha used her visual art skills to illustrate the enjoyment, fears, and challenges that youth living with disabilities face on a daily basis and hopes that this book will help inspire more children living with intellectual and/or physical disabilities to participate in sports.
Logan Learns to Play will be available on Amazon for $15.00. We will let you know once it is available. Please use the link above to Pre-Order your copy.
Volunteers Needed!

The Pickering Football Club’s All Abilities Program is a unique program which offers children and youth with special needs a chance to have fun, make friends and get fit through the great game of soccer. We have grown to become one of the largest programs in Canada. We are always looking for volunteers to join our program. You will receive specialised training and the opportunity to truly make a difference in our community. Join our team to help us continue to bring much needed sports programs to the many children  in our community who may never get a chance to play and have fun in a sports environment.

As a Volunteer, you will: 
  • Work one-to-one with athletes, guiding them through the sessions
  • Work closely with other volunteers and instructors to learn how to be a great mentor and friend
  • Help set up and take down equipment
  • Demonstrate and help athletes learn soccer skills, physical literacy skills, and teamwork skills
  • Help athletes to make friends and have a great time!
