Baulkham Hills St Michael’s Knights and Granville & Districts Soccer Football Association (GDSFA) are proud we are continuing a sports program aimed at children aged up to 15 who have an intellectual disability. A set of rules has been developed to provide one-on-one guidance to the participants as they play. Each player will be allowed to have a chaperone on the field to assist and direct the player. It is hoped that once familiar with the play the player will become less dependent on the chaperone until able to play independently.
The Knights are proud to advise that TWO players have already graduated from Special Needs football into open competition. This is not an expectation we have of any player, but the pathway is now open if any further players prove to have the capacity and desire to do so.
Players will be guided through professional training provided by the coaches of ASR Football.
Players wishing to register do not need to attend, however their parents must register online, selecting "Special Needs" as the registration package, and MUST provide a birth certificate or current passport for us to copy on registration days. No photo is required for these athletes as they are playing in an internal competition. Returning players DO NOT need to provide proof of identification.
