Under 12s

We are passionate about inclusion, sport and social interactions for our superstars

Woking Wolves have an increasing number of Under-12 players.  Within the Disability Football For All (DFA) framework we love to ensure that young players with disabilities have access to the beautiful game in an inclusive, and supportive environment. The aim is to provide every child, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive challenges, the opportunity to play football, develop skills, and enjoy the camaraderie of team sports.

INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT
Our Under-12s football prioritizes creating an inclusive atmosphere where all children feel welcome and valued. Adaptations are made to the game rules, to meet the diverse needs of participants. Volunteers are DBS checked, and FA trained to understand and accommodate various disabilities, ensuring that every child can participate fully and safely.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT
Skill development is coreand while we try to ensure the sessions are engaging and fun, teaching the fundamentals of football. Our coaches focus on each child's individual progress, celebrating achievements big and small to build confidence and a love for the game.

SOCIAL INTEGRATION
Football is more than just a sport; it's a powerful tool for social integration. Woking Wolves promotes interaction and friendships among children of all abilities. Through team activities, children learn essential social skills like communication, cooperation, and empathy. These experiences help break down barriers and foster a sense of community and belonging.

HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Regular participation in football offers significant health and wellbeing benefits for children with disabilities. It encourages physical activity, which is crucial for maintaining fitness and preventing secondary health issues. Additionally, being part of a team and achieving personal goals can greatly enhance mental health and self-esteem.

FAMILY AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT
DFA recognizes the importance of family and community support in the development of young players. Parents and guardians are encouraged to be actively involved, creating a supportive network around the children. We organise regular social events, and communication to help to build a strong, inclusive football community where everyone feels they have a stake in the success and enjoyment of the sport.
