Target Youth Soccer Grant
For the second year in a row, Via West has received a generous $1,000 donation through Target’s youth soccer grant program. In 2018, funds were used to purchase brand-new regular and adaptive soccer equipment for school year weekend respite sessions and longer summer camps. Everyone enjoyed the new balls, goals, cones and field flags that motivated them to master soccer skills, demonstrate understanding of the game rules and sportsmanship, enjoy outdoor fitness activity, and engage in friendly competitions with peers.
In 2019, returning participants will hone their skills and new friends will have a chance to master the basics during lessons and scrimmages on the sports court. With colorful new pinneys funded by Target and adapted program instructors supported by the second grant, we expect to see spirited—but friendly—competition throughout the year.
