One of problems children with developmental disabilities have is that they are all too often denied participation in sports, because they can have difficulty following the rules of organized sports, or with the physicality of some gym activities. NPO TRACOS sends experienced and professional coaches to offer a soccer class so that children with developmental disabilities who give up joining sports activities nearby, can do a lot of sports without feeling stressed, scared, perplexed or dissapointed.
In order to carry out our mission, "Normalization through sports ", reaching out to individuals and society is crucial. We organize special events that unimpaired individuals participate in as players and volunteers to raise awareness and understanding.
