Fontana AYSO Region 136

What is the program about?

Our goal here at AYSO is for every child to have the opportunity to play soccer. The EPIC (Everyone Plays In our Community) program provides a great soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities, and with children with different abilities, make it difficult to participate on mainstream teams. EPIC teams can include individuals who are blind or visually impaired, or have limited mobility, those in the autism spectrum, and those diagnosed Down Syndrome or cerebral palsy. The program is run entirely by volunteers, mostly by special needs parents.

EPIC works by creating teams made up of EPIC players and “buddies” to help them on the field. The teams are organized by ability, size, or gender according to the needs of the Region. Fields and game times accommodate the players. Uniforms, banners and all the standard soccer gear are be part of the experience.

Our hope is that EPIC will help the athletes gain confidence, learn teamwork and the rules of the game, and enjoy physical exercise. Flexibility is a key component to administering the program. Overall, the EPIC experience is meant to be fun, fair and safe for the athletes.

Team sports are one of the defining experiences of childhood. Weekday practices, Saturdays on the field, winning, losing, and the excitement of play are all part of growing up. EPIC
 makes it possible for children with disabilities to enjoy these rites of passage. If you have a player that may benefit in this program, please sign them up! Part of soccer are the experiences and friendships created that bring memories to last a lifetime.

Registration fees for VIP players is a total of FREE for all players, (only paying $22.75 for annual National membership and service fees) which will include a full uniform, about 8 weeks of soccer, photo packet and supplementary insurance. We will accommodate a set game time every Saturday to help with routine and practices will be determined by number of participants. 

Registration ages for VIP players begins at 3 years old and we do not have an age limit.

Just like any other program, the EPIC could always use volunteers, from coaches to referees or Buddies to help each player on the field. If you are interested, please contact Leilani for more info.
