Clemson University’s Paralympic Soccer (CP Soccer) program provides training and other supports to athletes, youth and veterans who have:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Experienced a traumatic brain injury (through combat or accident)
  • Experienced a stroke
  • Other neurological impairments that influence their mobility

Programs are designed to:

  • Give paralympic youth an opportunity to build the skills they need to play soccer at a competitive level
  • Ensure athletes can stay on top of their game while earning their university degree
  • Help veterans learn the game and how it’s coached in a positive camp experience
  • Promote opportunities for paralympic athletes and coaches to compete and build on their existing skill sets
