FC Columbia County, TOPSoccer to benefit special needs athletes
FC Columbia County is "incredibly proud" to join TOPSoccer in helping any boy or girl with a mental or physical disability learn and play soccer, free of cost.
"These kids often watch from the sidelines and are not given the chance to join in and play soccer because of their situation or disability," FC Columbia County director of coaching Simon Date said. "Having a special needs child myself, I understand how important it is for these kids to feel 'normal' and play the same game that their friends and peers play."
Sessions run from 10-11 a.m. on July 16, July 23, August 6, August 20 and August 27 at St. Helens High School.
A showcase game will take place during the Big Training weekend of August 27.
