Canberra United All Abilities Academy is the first dedicated football academy for people with a disability in the ACT. The Academy, which is believed to be the first all-ability football academy aligned with either a Hyundai A-League or Westfield W-League club, is open to all footballers with cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury or symptoms acquired from a stroke.
Nineteen footballers have joined the Academy to train twice a week with accredited coaches at Hawker Football Centre.
The Academy provides participants with real opportunities to represent Capital Football at the CP Football Nationals and the FFA National Futsal Championships.
