MSC Buddies

Year four of the MSC Buddies Program is underway.  Working with the Freehold Challenger Program, we have invited the Challenger Athletes to special training sessions, where they are paired up with “buddies” to help them with the drills and skills they learn each night.  As each session progresses, the drills get a little harder, but the Challenger Athletes love learning more and playing more each week.  Everyone leaves with a big smile on their face, and looking forward to the next week.

In previous years, we have had Red Bulls players join our sessions.  This year, their playoff schedule didn’t allow for a visit (good for them, bad for us), but they did send Red Bulls soccer balls so each Athlete could have one.  A very nice gesture…and hopefully the timing works out better next fall.

When my brothers and I started this program four years ago, we couldn’t have imagined it would go so well.  With over 25 Challenger Athletes signed-up, and all the buddies there to help, it really makes for a special event.  Thank you to Alan Goldstein, Director of the Freehold Area Challenger Sports Program, the Manalapan Soccer Club for their sponsorship, Brian Grimm for training the group, and all the volunteers that come each week.

If you are interested in volunteering for future sessions, please send an e-mail to [email protected].
