There are passionate football players all over Switzerland. However, many of them don’t have the possibility to play their favourite sport in a club. Let’s create the conditions that everybody
can actively participate in a club.
Every club can be proud to make it possible for every passionate football player to participate actively in their club. This social integration is a “win-win”-situation for all parties involved.
The contagious enthusiasm and the genuine joy of playing football enhance the club, enlives the ambiance and create a space for encounters.
Most of all it takes genuine pleasure to work together with people with disabilities. Experience in football and the ability to adapt the training to the team are equally important. It is also an
advantage to have a basic knowledge about mental disabilities.
To assure training without difficulties, it is important to exchange regularly with the relatives, schools or other involved people. Finally, the main responsibility lies with the legal
guardians. This means that depending on the disability the presence of a parent or guardian is strictly required.
First, it requires a coach, who likes to work with people with disabilities and who wants to support their interests and needs. Second, you have to find a club that supports the project. To form
the team, you finally have to build up personal relations to the relevant institutions (e.g. integration classes, school for therapeutic pedagogy, homes for people with disabilities) or address
the parents directly.
