Soccer with Two Thumbs Up

Play soccer and serve your community all at the same time.

Two Thumbs Up is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia that provides youth and young adults with autism and other special needs social opportunities to connect with neuro-typical peers and each other. They connect with teens from all over the city and "pair" them with individuals on the autism spectrum. In that sense, every event they host is diverse and not an autism or special needs group. We all get the opportunity to share together and learn from each other.

Soccer Event: Playing soccer improves attention, engagement, visual tracking/visual motor skills and helps promote the release of endorphins through physical exertion. Please join Two Thumbs Up for a small gathering outdoors to enjoy friends and kick around some balls! Class taught by former Israeli soccer professional Sam Korezki.
