KCTV5 News Report, June 20, 2019
Soccer for everyone! On Thursday, June 20, Sporting Kansas City players teamed up with The Whole Person and Mobility First to give kids a chance to play soccer. Some, for the very first time. At the Sporting KC’s Soccer For All Abilities Clinic, they used different types of soccer balls -- including audible soccer balls -- to give kids with all abilities a chance to play soccer. Sporting KC, The Victory Project, The Whole Person, and Mobility First were excited to collaborate and to truly make the sport of soccer accessible to everyone.

On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month, The Whole Person’s Adaptive Sports Program hosts a tennis session for all abilities from 11:00am-12:30pm at Northland Racquet Club. (arrive by 10:45am)
These beginner sessions are fun and interactive, involving simple techniques such as dropping or bouncing a ball to the participants as they try to properly make contact with the tennis racket and the ball. The session is open to all with a physical or intellectual disability. If you can swing a racket you can play! The sessions are a part of the Kansas City No Coast Program.
