Walking Soccer was originally founded in the United Kingdom and has rapidly spread across the globe. Walking Soccer is a leisurely paced game with a format designed for seniors and those with reduced mobility to help stay active. Running and hard tackling is against the rules to lessen the risk of injury. Aside from the positives of promoting a healthy lifestyle, the most significant impact that the sport has on its participants has more to do with encouraging social engagement, camaraderie and overall mental wellbeing. While fun, it can also be extremely competitive with the game now being played at an International level. If you are interested in hearing more about how we can get a pick-up style format off and running in North Delaware, then let me know. For 2019, the intention is to have a couple of co-ed outdoor sessions in the Fall (weather permitting) and seek out indoor facilities for the Winter.
