Welcome To Mini Tekkers
Specialists In Autism Football
We are a website dedicated to football for children on the autism spectrum and those suffering with low self confidence or low self-esteem.
Our mission is to provide support and resources for parents and coaches of children who are already playing or that are interested in participating in football as we believe that every child, regardless of their ability or diagnosis, should have the opportunity to enjoy the physical, social, and emotional benefits of sports.
As a parent or coach of a child with autism, you may have questions or concerns about how to get involved in football in a way that is safe, supportive, and inclusive.
That's where we come in.
On this website, you'll find a range of resources and information to help you navigate the world of youth football with a child on the autism spectrum.
So, what can you expect to find?
Our resources are divided into two main categories: one for parents and one for coaches.
In the resources for parents section, you'll find information on the equipment and safety considerations for football, tips on finding a team or league that is welcoming and inclusive for children with autism, and guidance on how to support your child as they participate in football.
For coaches, we have a wealth of information on how to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for children with autism, including communication strategies, ideas for modifying drills and practices, and advice on inclusive coaching.
So whether you're a parent looking for guidance on getting your child involved in football, or a coach looking to create a more inclusive team environment, we hope you'll find our website to be a helpful and supportive resource.
Thank you for visiting!
