What? North Toronto Soccer Club is proud to continue offering the North Toronto Special Olympics Soccer Program, a program offered since 2015. This program is for players aged 4 to 18 who have any intellectual or physical disabilities.

When? This program is consistently offered on Sunday mornings throughout the year with the help of staff and volunteers.

Who? The program is focused on creating a positive social environment, through the help of dedicated volunteers (Nitros players from the club) to strive for a 1:1 coach to player ratio. The program is split into a junior and senior group, which is based on playing ability as opposed to age. The junior group is focused on more 1:1 assistance and individual games, while the senior group is made up of the more experienced players who play more small sided 5v5 games throughout their session.

How? There is no cost to this program as it is proudly supported by the North Toronto Sport Foundation, donations are welcomed to continue supporting this and other programs at the club.
