Dustin Hodgson


A national team member since 2005, Dustin Hodgson scored Canada’s first goal at the 2015 CP World Football Championships to spearhead a 3-1 win over Northern Ireland. Hodgson helped Canada to a 3-3 record and a 10th place finish at the event.

Hodgson started playing soccer at age six and hasn’t stopped since. He had never heard of CP football until he came across national coach Drew Ferguson’s name on the Vancouver Whitecaps website.  Hodgson doesn’t have full functional movement and compensates by being in the best possible physical condition he can be. “It helps me, it helps my team.”

Hodgson describes seven-a-side football as very fast and says people will be surprised by what the players can achieve with their disabilities.
