Learn a new sport or brush off your cleats! Join the Sudbury District Soccer Club for blind soccer summer development sessions. 

"5-a-side soccer (a.k.a. “blind soccer”) is an adapted version of ‘the beautiful game’ that is played at the Paralympic level by blind athletes. The rules of 5-a-side are similar to the rules in able-bodied soccer save a few distinct modifications: the ball makes noise when it moves; all players aside from the goalkeeper wears eye shades; the goalkeeper is fully sighted and also acts as a guide for players in his defensive zone; and, as the name entails, the sport is played with 5 players per team." - Ontario Blind Sports Association. 

Learn the fundamentals of the sport from someone who knows it best. The group meets every Wednesday.
