Walking Soccer

For several months, we have been asking the Great Valley older adult community what other types of programming they would like to see at the new GVCO Community Center.

Recently we received a fantastic idea...Walking Soccer. We hadn't heard of it, but once we Googled it we found out "it's a thing!" Seems like a great idea and we certainly have the field space. We just need to know who may be interested so we can get it started.

If you are 60 yrs old or older and would like to participate in a Walking Soccer program, email [email protected] to tell us! If there's enough interest, we will certainly pursue this Walking Soccer thing.

"Former soccer players and newcomers alike are discovering that walking soccer is a safe, inclusive sport with benefits for both physical and mental health." Read more about how it's making a difference in Halifax.
