Description

South Bay VIP Soccer is an EPIC program within the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) and is run by volunteers. The program was started in the fall of 2003 and serves children with disabilities who otherwise would not have the opportunity to play soccer. We have adapted the game of soccer so that every child can play regardless of their ability. For example, we use balls that beep for our visually impaired players.

The program operates in the fall and spring. We have served over 500 children since 2003. For children with disabilities there are many barriers that they must overcome in their lives. South Bay VIP Soccer eliminates some of these barriers to enable inclusive soccer for kids with disabilities. Since its founding in 1964, AYSO's main philosophy has been "Everyone plays", now that has been expanded to "Everyone Plays In our Community". This program makes this key philosophy a reality.
