My left foot
Welcome to My Left Foot!
About us: We are an adapted soccer program that offers personalized coaching for athletes with disabilities.
Philosophy: We believe that there are no limits to what a child can achieve when they are provided with the proper tools and adequate opportunities to realize their full potentials.
About the program name:
When we first launched this program 6 years ago, we named it based on Christy Brown’s autobiography, My Left Foot, which describes his experience living with cerebral palsy. At the time, we felt this name to be appropriate for our program, to highlight the idea that there are no limits to what individuals can achieve when they are included and supported to participate fully in their communities. However, recently, we have heard from some of you about your concerns with this name and, in reflecting upon the feedback we have received, we now recognize that this name may have implications that we had not previously considered. With that being said, we sincerely apologize for the harm this has caused and we fully agree that it is time to change the name of the program.
We are proposing to use this season to come up with a new name for the program. We want to open it up to athletes to suggest their ideas and then have the team vote on their favorite name. Athletes are welcome to send their ideas by email or let the coaches know at practice. The final vote will happen at the end of the season.
Mission: Have fun! Make friends! Be active!
