A great partnership by the recently renamed Vikings Futsal group
The Brisbane Paralympic Football Program was formed in 2006. The Brisbane Paralympic Football Program is a band of enthusiastic parents who want their children, whatever their ability to stay active and healthy. Operating under the umbrella of the Westside FootballClub, Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association, the program currently has over 50 athletes all of varying ages and abilities.
The prgram currently has athletes with Cerebral Palsy of all classifications, Aspergers, Amputee’s ID athletes, Sight Impaired, Down Sydrome and athletes with Wheelchairs & Walkers. We welcome any person of any ability!
Under the direction of Head Coach Jay Larkins, the Program now has more than 50 athletes, three assistant coaches, managers and a regularly attending physiotherapist. And now FUTSAL COACHES. A number of players in the current state and national teams came through the program. But the BPFP is not just for advanced athletes; it is for all ages and abilities and encourages family participation. Our aim is to get young people with a disability to stay active and healthy.
Australian Futsal Association have come on board to lend a hand to the program in the aspects of Futsal.
BRISBANE’S Paralympic Football program has a NEW FIELD OF DREAMS. The field of Dreams was donated to the program from Queensland Christian Soccer Association Inc. (QCSA) thus naming the field ” QCSA FIELD OF DREAMS” The field is part of the ongoing commitment by the QCSA and the BPFP to ensure that any child can have the opportunity to participate in the world game irrespective of their personal circumstances.

The Queensland Christian Soccer Association established itself in 1969 as an ecumenical independent body to foster, develop and encourage a Christian Soccer competition on days other than Sunday. This alternative “product” encourages and develops Christian principles in all aspects of the game and our Association actively promotes and supports good sportsmanship and a sense of friendly competition between all concerned.
Queensland Christian Soccer Association Inc. and the Brisbane Paralympic Football Program are both fully supportive of fostering growth and the development of all players and the acquisition of the QCSA Field of dreams will ensure that participants will reap the benefit of such equipment for many years to come.
