ACCT Academy Football Club



ACCT Academy Football Club
 
ACCT Academy is an inclusive football club for autistic children aged 7-19, run by experienced coaches. Our coaches Brad, Niall and Sean are fantastic at getting everyone involved, regardless of ability. They are effective at managing challenging and distressed behaviour positively.
 
 
The sessions are fun and active and help to develop football, social and communication skills, and increase confidence and self-esteem. Functional skills will be improved through fun and engaging drills, games and matches.
 
 
Groups for ages 7 – 12 and 13 – 19 years. Siblings are welcome too when accompanying their autistic sibling. 
 
 
Our Football Club has become increasingly busy. To manage numbers and ensure that everyone is getting the most from the sessions we are moving to a booking system on Eventbrite. If your child / children would like to attend our sessions please get in touch.
 
 
Sessions are every Friday 6-7pm at Goals Sheffield, 95 Norfolk Park Road, Sheffield, S2 2RU. In cases of extreme weather we will post an update on our website, please check before setting off.
 
 
For more information please contact Nicola at nicola.hough@acctsheffield.org.uk or text 07527 824034
 
Our thanks to the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust for funding ACCT Academy football sessions.
 
 
 
‘ACCT Academy has enabled three of my sons to access an out of school activity, where they are understood and nurtured in a safe environment.
They love to play football, but sometimes react to situations in a different way to a child who is neurotypical. The specialist staff are equipped to deal with all the situations, and understand the difficulties they have.
ACCT Academy has raised their self esteem enormously, and has helped them to regulate their emotions.’
