DYNAMO SOCCER!  |  SOCCER CAMP FOR KIDS WITH AUTISM!
Sponsored by Advantage Emblem and Jimmy John’s

CANCELLED DUE TO LOW REGISTRATION NUMBERS

Sessions are July 20, July 27, August 3, and August 10
9:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Jean Duluth Soccer Complex, 4951 Jean Duluth Road

AYSA will offer an opportunity for kids ages 6-12 who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to participate in a soccer camp designed to be a fun and positive experience for many kids on the Autism Spectrum.

Online registration is open and remains open until 4 PM on the Thursday prior to each session.  Players may register for each individual Saturday session in advance on the AYSA website, or if space is available, at the field on the day of the session.  The camp fee for each session is $15 in advance, or $18 at the field.

This camp will emphasize fun and soccer skill training in a flexible environment, minimize rules and competition, and provide opportunities for kids and parents to choose a level of interaction and skill development that works best for them.  This unique AYSA program will provide experiences that are appropriate for children who fall within a wide range of the autism spectrum. Coaches will have experience or training related to understanding the unique characteristics of participants on the autism spectrum, including special considerations that will need to be made in order for all participants to be successful.

During these sessions, we will offer opportunities for kids to learn and have fun dribbling, passing and shooting. Here is a description of basic functions that we believe will be important to parents to consider when deciding whether this camp will be an appropriate fit for their child.   

We believe that in order to participate in this program, a child should to be able to do the following, at a minimum.

  • Imitate basic motor skills such as kicking, running and jumping.
  • Follow basic verbal directions.
  • Transition between activities independently or with the help of visual supports.
  • If a player is able to participate safely in the program but requires individual assistance with communication, behavior support or with activities of daily living, parents will be asked to take a more active role in ensuring that their child is able to fully participate in program activities.  Please contact us with any questions regarding your child’s ability to participate in this camp.
