SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM


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.

For the fall of 2019, 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.

PROGRAM HISTORY
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.

In 2020, Brendan Sammon will be taking over the program.



WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP
Our Special Needs Program is always in need of volunteers to help run the program. If you would like to donate time on Sunday mornings, please contact 2020 program director Brendan Sammon.
