SSG Celestials Football Club
SSG Celestials FC is Bedfordshire’s first and only fully inclusive club for children and young people with special educational needs, disabilities, and mental health issues. We aim to provide fun and inclusive football in a self-sustainable football club that these children, young people, and families can call their own. The club is operated by volunteers across both the coaching team and committee and is a non-profit organisation.
SSG Celestials FC provide fun and inclusive weekly football sessions for children and young people with SEND and barriers to inclusion. Sessions are open to everyone, and we will do our best to ensure everyone is included as much as we can. The sessions are based around simple and enjoyable football activities that get the players moving, developing skills with the ball, and having a great time.
Our aim however, is to be more than just a football club and become a community hub for active families to come together and share support and time together with other families in similar situations.
Players get coached through fun and inclusive games and activities that can be adapted to cater for their different needs, we use a range of exciting equipment to develop skills, mobility and understanding. The clubs main sport for delivery is football but we offer several ‘off shoot’ alternative options building on our fully inclusive approach and ethos to give our players different experiences. See our timetable for full details of what’s involved.
Parents/guardians are required to stay on site and close by throughout the session, to supervise their children should they disengage from the group and/or need specific pastoral care.
