About Soccer4All

Soccer4All is the Dover Soccer Association (DSA) league for children with a physical and / or mental disability. The program is open to any child 5 - 18 years old with a development delay or disability including but not limited to: ADD/ADHD, Autism, Hearing Impaired, Sight Impaired, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorder and Spinal Bifida. Players do not need to be Dover residents.

The Soccer4All program has three primary goals: 1) Get Active; 2) Make friends; and 3) Have Fun! It also gives parents an opportunity to enjoy watching their children as well as develop friendships themselves.

Soccer4All utilizes many young volunteers called Soccer Buddies. Buddies are middle and high school players from the Dover Schools soccer program who assist the Soccer4All players and coaches. In many cases, players are paired up one-on-one with a buddy to offer individualized direction and support.

The players are grouped according to ability and age. There is a coach for each group. The size of the group depends on the number of children that sign up for the session.

VERY IMPORTANT: At least one parent or legal guardian needs to be present at all times for every session without exception.

Our Coaches

The coaches for Soccer4All are all volunteers, have background checks, have completed the required concussion training, and are part of the DSA organization. Throughout the season, other DSA competitive coaches may be assisting.
