Volusia county soccer community is truly amazing! We called for them to help in a charity event and the Soccer Clubs, college programs, individual teams, coaches and sponsors all responded!
The HADC charity soccer clinic was co-sponsored by the ZEE Goalkeeper Academy, Port Orange Soccer Club and Stetson FA and thanks to the efforts of these three soccer programs we were capable of bringing 107 young soccer players to the event, raising $2,200 for the charity Help A Diabetic Child!!
There was a huge presence of players from four of the five counties youth soccer clubs. Coach Vinney from the Southeast Volusia Soccer Club helped bring to the event 40 club boys and girls!! Lots more came from the Port Orange Soccer Club, Deltona Youth Soccer Club and Stetson FA (the Ormond Beach SC board of directors declined to participate).
Present also the coaches and the players from Stetson University and Daytona State men’s soccer programs. Coaches Petrut Bombanac, Nathan Monsanto and Emmett Rutkowski (Stetson University) and Coach Travis Rovillo (Daytona State) were simply amazing, working with the campers and giving coaching points to the athletes. A big thanks goes out to Cristian Neagu head coach at Stetson Men’s Soccer and Bart Sasnett head coach at Daytona State men’s soccer for allowing their players to attend the event!
Two hours of fun and great training for the kids present! Towards the end we organized a scrimmage between the Port Orange SC U19 boys vs The Daytona State Falcons men’s soccer team, won by the POSC 5-3 after a close penalty shootout!
