Blast off for new Comets Disability Football Programme

A safe space for disabled children aged 5-11 to play football

This is football but not as you know it – results, stats and performance can be damned. It’s not traditional - it’s where fun and friendships come together within a safe and recreational football environment.

It’s a safe space where disabled children can believe and belong. It steps outside the usual parameters with a bespoke, flexible way of playing. Because this is football that breaks all the old rules and replaces them with a new one - just be you.

So, what is the Comets Disability Football Programme?
Comets is a recreational, pan-disability football offer for disabled children aged 5-11.

Sessions occur weekly, either during the evening or on the weekend, and are focused on helping children with a disability to have fun, whilst building confidence, independence and social relationships.

All the sessions are delivered by FA qualified coaches, who have received specific training and guidance. This means that Comets provides a safe and all-inclusive environment allowing children to take part in football and develop their skills.

Comets will help clubs provide and support players within the age bracket with fun and recreational football, helping to grow the disability pathway as a whole.
