Best Practices from ECA Member Clubs
For FC Thun, it is important that mentally handicapped children can regularly play football together with normal children. Therefore, special trainings sessions are held 25 times a year. It is also important that this special group is trained by professionals as well as young players of FC Thun, for them to experience memorable moments.
