The Boys & Girls Soccer Programs always try to give back to the Victor community.
On Saturday September 9th, the Girls and Boys Varsity Soccer Teams volunteered in a Challenger Soccer event at Dick’s House of Sport.
Challenger Sports allows children with disabilities to play a variety of sports like soccer. The directors of Challenger Sports, Greg and Sherri Helmer, are Victor residents and parents of two of the athletes.
They contacted us (Coach Kelly Ahern & Coach Steve Fish) and asked if our teams would be interested in participating.
We were so excited for this opportunity. We had both of our Victor HS Soccer teams come on the 9th, Saturday the 16th the girls team volunteered, and this weekend (Sat.the 23rd) the boys team will be back.
Everyone wins during these events. The HS players enjoyed teaching their skills to the Challenger players and the Challenger athletes loved being mentored & seeing the HS players in their uniforms! It was such a wonderful experience full of smiles!
