It is an incredible blessing to serve special needs children through soccer through our Agape Soccer Program. We believe that children are an image bearer of God, and that he/she is loved unconditionally by their Heavenly Father, regardless of their mental and/or physical capacities.
Our goal is to see special needs children not only surrender their lives to Jesus, but also to be discipled and encouraged in their personal faith journey.
Among the many benefits of the Agape Soccer Program are:
The game of soccer provides a simple, safe and effective way to encourage special needs children to engage in meaningful exercise. Whether participating in practice sessions or playing games, the health benefits of consistent movement and coordination activities are of tremendous value
Receiving instruction, solving problems and cooperating with other children are critical components in the game of soccer. Through a variety of stimulating and engaging activities, participants will grow both cognitively and emotionally through their Sports Quest experience
Sports Quest believes that every child has the right to enjoy sports – in this case, soccer. Since 1996, thousands of children have benefitted from the excitement and exhilaration the game has to offer, not to mention the social interaction, confidence and friendships which have occurred simultaneously
