Dozens of kids with special needs got the chance to have fun learning new soccer skills this spring through Keller United Miracle Soccer.

About 30 children, ages 5 to 18, with physical or intellectual disabilities participated in the eight-week program at the Keller Sports Park. The last session was May 10.

This is the second year that the Keller Soccer Association has hosted the Miracle Soccer program, said Ed Palluth, KSA president.

“The program emphasizes fun, physical fitness and socialization in a positive environment,” Palluth said. “Trained soccer coaches run the sessions and teach real soccer skills at a level the kids can understand and fully participate in.”
