Thankyou Sunshine Football

Christchurch United and United Sports Centre are very lucky to host Sunshine Football at our facilities every term 1 and term 4, we like to say Thankyou for your excellent programme and support.

Sunshine Football was formally established in 2009 and is a programme that is
managed by the Southwest Football Foundation Trust. It began with a small number of
players and people passionate to get it up and running, and has grown since then.

The year-round programme, for children and young adults, is designed to provide
footballing and regular exercise opportunities for players with developmental delays
including those with Down Syndrome and Autism.

Sunshine Football have trained coaches who provide low coach - player ratio training and support. The exercises are fun while encouraging skill development.
We are a volunteer organisation, whose Trustees and Coaches all donate their time and
skills for the improvement of our Players football skills and to enhance their sporting
Based on the school calendar, Sunshine football's weekly sessions in Summer Terms are held outdoor and Winter Terms are held indoors.
At Sunshine Football, their  players find people like themselves.  The comradery at Sunshine Football is great for the Players, and also their families, who can often feel isolated from sport and other aspects of life. Some of our players who are here today have been with Sunshine Football since its inception. They have long-term friendships, and still love football!
