What is walking soccer? This new, low-cost soccer format is breaking through barriers of traditional soccer and helping players get back on the pitch and introducing people to the game for the very first time. The game is played at a slower pace which makes it perfect for all skill and mobility levels and can be played on all surfaces including gym floors, grass, halls and church basements, and surfaces like tennis courts. That is what is so unique about the world’s beautiful game – all you need to play are some eager players, a ball and a few markers to line the field and mark the goals!
Whether you are a parent or grandparent looking to find new ways to play with the kids, a competitive player who craves the feel of a ball at their feet, or someone who is looking to enhance their neuroplasticity and physical literacy, walking soccer is worth a try!
We welcome you to come and check out a walking soccer event with one of our members FC Regina, Moose Jaw Soccer Association, or Saskatoon Adult Soccer! If you are interested in checking out all the soccer activities kicking off around the province or want more information on how to get started in your own community visit www.sasksoccer.com or like us and send us a message on Facebook.
