WeCan Play Soccer Program


The Cumberland United Soccer Club is very proud to offer the WeCan Play Soccer Program in the summer for players of all ages who may have physical, mental or social challenges. This Program is offered within the Ottawa/Orleans community and provides a high quality soccer experience for those who cannot successfully participate on mainstream teams. 

This Program is designed to encourage positive interactions, form friendships and put smiles on faces through the enjoyment of the beautiful game.

All individuals aged six (6) and up, with any physical, mental and/or social challenges are welcome. Below, you will find some specific programs that are up and running for 2018, including the soccer for players with autism program.   

We are looking to start more and more programs and want literally anyone to have access to the game. We ask you to please contact us if you want to play, have a specific need and don't see a program for you, or if you wish to volunteer to help with these programs.  Please contact Pavel Cancura, gm@cumberlandsoccer.com
