Tulsa, OK (January 14, 2020) -- The Oklahoma Soccer Association (OSA), announces a one-of-a-kind partnership with Clemson University to offer a Paralympic Soccer Coaches Camp.

The Paralympic Soccer Coaches Camp which will be hosted by OSA from August 27 – 30, 2020, and will focus on growing the sport of soccer for veterans with and without disabilities. The three-day camp is designed to develop and educate player-coaches who will then have the opportunity to partner with local soccer clubs and leagues to engage in community programs throughout Oklahoma. The camp is funded in large part from a grant from the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs.

Clemson University is a leader in adaptive sports and has been hosting Paralympic camps for veterans and veterans with disabilities since 2016. Dr. Skye Arthur-Banning, associate professor in Clemson’s Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management Department has been leading this initiative.

“The men and women who participate in this program have given so much for our country, to be able to provide an opportunity to become engaged in the communities in which they live, through soccer is amazing” said Arthur-Banning.

Every attendee of the Paralympic Soccer Coaches Camp will obtain their US Soccer Grassroots Coaching License as well as introductions into each of the different types of adaptive soccer programs.

“Being able to see the development of all the veterans that attend is nothing short of remarkable” said Arthur-Banning.
