Buddy Ball Sports is a non-profit sports organization dedicated to providing the opportunity for children with developmental disabilities to play sports. The BuddyBall model is an all-volunteer experience matching children with developmental disabilities to non-disabled buddies for 1-1 sports activities.
Our players serve as their ‘buddies’ and teach the children some basic soccer skills. It is a great program that gives these children an opportunity to feel they are part of a ’team’ and a chance to play and socialize with other kids in a normal setting. It is a very rewarding experience for our players and it gives them the opportunity to give back to the community and share their love of soccer with other kids that otherwise might not have a chance to experience it.
