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.

The 2022 season will take place at the Jewish Community Center (JCC), 45 Haverford Road in Wynnewood. The program is tentatively set to run on Sunday mornings, starting on September 11 and running through early November.


HAR ZION TEMPLE MEN'S CLUB TO SPONSOR THE SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM IN 2022

LMSC is pleased to announce that the Har Zion Temple Men's Club of Narberth will be fully sponsoring the 2022 Special Needs Program. Through their generous donation, LMSC will be able to have all participants play at no cost. The donation will also enable us to cover the cost of of jerseys, game balls, goals, pinnies, cones, etc.

Our thanks to the Har Zion Men's Club for the extremly generous donation.




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.

Pete Garzia took charge of the Special Needs Program in 2012. Pete stepped down after the 2019 season, at which time Brendan Sammon took 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 Program Director Brendan Sammon.
