This past month, KNSC, in partnership with Boomerang Health Clinic (SickKids affiliate), has hosted a "Soccer Clinic" for children with Special Needs. Our intent was to introduce "the beautiful game" to individuals who may never gotten the chance to play. The events proved to be very successful. As the Head Coordinator of Special Needs Integration for KNSC, I was very pleased to see the incredible interactions between KNSC players & staff alongside the Special Needs participants.
To assist with the clinic, I asked the KNSC U-12 Boys team and coaches if they were interested in participating. I was overwhelmed by the desire to assist with the event. Their maturity and genuine compassion with the Boomerang participants was truly remarkable.
Thank you to the Boomerang staff for contacting their patients, as well as, all of the behind-the-scene tasks that you assisted us with.
Looking forward to bigger and better Special Needs events with our new friends at Boomerang.
