THE LMSC SPECIAL NEEDS SOCCER PROGRAM
is offered to boys and girls who have physical,
mental or emotional limitations that prevent them from being able to play soccer with other
children. Some of
the players require "walkers" to get up and down the field, other players can play unassisted,
but at a very slow rate due to physical or mental limitations.
The players range between 6 and 16 years of age. For the fall of 2018, the program will again run
on SUNDAY mornings, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM. The program will start on the weekend after Labor Day Weekend
and run through mid-November.
The program has been around since 1992 and was created by Susan Reynolds. Under Susan's
leadership, about 25-30 needy kids began playing soccer in the fall.
When Susan retired from the program after many years, Steve Spencer took over the program and did
an excellent job for close to 10 years. Steve retired from the program in 2006 and turned the
program over to Steve and Marlene Ross who ran the program through the 2011 season.
In 2012, Pete Garzia took charge of the Special Needs Program.
