The Strikers Academy is a new addition to the Woodland Soccer Club. The Strikers Academy is specifically designed for athletes with varying degrees of cognitive and or physical impairments. Through soccer, athletes are given opportunities to learn social, emotional, and life skills that are not taught in classroom or in-home settings. The Academy is run by volunteers, many of whom are special education teachers. The volunteer-coaches are able to adapt soccer drills for each athlete depending on the athlete’s needs. Siblings of athletes in the Strikers Academy can play alongside as peer supporters, further expanding learning opportunities for both the athlete as well as the sibling. Above all, the Strikers Academy gives all athletes successful, safe environments to learn and have fun.
