KickDeck & Their Opportunity Presents: Soccer Speaks – Online Intro To The World’s Most Universal Sport
KickDeck Cares is a 6-week virtual program that focuses on education and provides opportunity to find joy in soccer and develop the skills to win on and off the field. Skylar Thomas - KickDeck founder and professional soccer player will be discussing 6 keys to success that he has learned throughout his career.
KickDeck Cares will feature Canadian soccer legends Dwayne De Rosario, Carmelina Moscato, and Jonelle (Filigno) Hopkins. The program is intended to support the needs of marginalized youth that have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and are struggling to maintain their physical health and mental well-being.
These lessons will be delivered on a weekly basis in an online format and will be drawn from the KickDeck exercises. Following the release of the weekly pre-recorded session, participants will engage with professional soccer players for a live Zoom session. This will be a great opportunity to train like a professional, ask questions about that week’s lesson, and gain insight into the mentality of a professional athlete.
Upon registration, each participant will have a program package delivered to their homes including a KickDeck signed by Skylar Thomas, a soccer ball, a bag, a workout shirt, a homework booklet, and a tablet for those who qualify.
Registration is restricted to a hand-picked demographic. Enrolment will be free but home packages will be limited to the first 150 registrants as well as the option to register at no cost into the local league soccer program as a method to re-integrate youth into a more traditional social environment.
