CP Soccer in other countries
Many other countries already have a national network of CP Soccer teams what function as a league, and enable people with CP to participate in soccer from a young age all the way through to adulthood. England and Scotland, in particular, have very robust leagues, with every major city sponsoring a local team. By contrast, the US has no league and therefore no access to CP Soccer for young people who love to play. This is important because most kids who would qualify for CP Soccer find they are not capable enough to continue playing on competitive teams as they grow older and the level of play becomes higher. They can’t keep up with the able-bodied players, and so they end up being pushed out of the sport. By creating a national league, we will be building a way for these kids to keep soccer in their lives.
