Soccer training programme that provides opportunities for children with autism to interact with others and to enhance communication skills and self-confidence


Love Soccer creates fun and healthy moments for kids with autism and their parents while bringing them back to the community.

Soccer is a team sport that requires a lot of interaction with teammates and coaches. Using soccer as the medium, Love Soccer is a programme of sports therapy that helps kids with autism improve social and communication skills and attain self-achievement. It will also help parents of autistic kids know more about their kids and explore their kids' strength, releasing parents’ stress and anxiety. It will also bring insight into developing better coaching tools to help autistic children.

Love Soccer is a programme with a "Take and Give" concept: for every six autistic kids pay and join the soccer class, one free training quota will be granted to an autistic kid from the low-income group.
