Boys and Girls Clubs of America-A positive place for kids.
Knights Take Time Out to Give Back

March 8, 2007

On Wednesday, March 8, 2007, during Spring Training, the Neumann College softball team volunteered their afternoon to the Boys and Girls Club of Taft, Florida.


The softball team experienced the thrill of compassion and the importance of leadership as they demonstrated the fundamentals of softball to the boys and girls of the club. Not only did the softball team earn the confidence, respect and friendship of the boys and girls, but they also helped the children understand that teamwork and cooperation play an important role in the ultimate success both on the field of play and in life.


"We come down here each year to play softball," stated Head Coach Bill Saar. "However, the true highlight of this trip is this experience. This is the second year in a row that we have teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club and it is just an unbelievable event."


Although the softball team sets various goals for both their spring training trip in Orlando and for the duration of the season, accomplishing these goals is minor satisfaction in comparison to the amazing inspiration derived from the interaction with the children at the club. The entire Knights softball team concurred that this community service project was the highlight of their spring training trip.


Neumann will return home this weekend to prepare for its first conference game of the season on Friday, March 16, 2007 at Eastern University. The first pitch is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
