Challenger Soccer Programs

The Russell Soccer Club announced a new program in 2004 to provide a FUN introduction to soccer and soccer-related skills to mentally and/or physically challenged young people in the Russell area. After three years this program has grown tremendously and is unique in Eastern Ontario.

The program uses a clinic format and gradually introduces the participants to basic soccer skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting, etc. It will take place once a week at 6:30pm, for a period of 8 weeks. Participants are grouped according to ability, and each group will proceed at their own pace. New skills are gradually introduced as the group is ready, leading to fun scrimmages.

For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering to help, contact the Russell Soccer Club, at (613) 445-6666 or by email.
