We Get a Kick out of Soccer

Posted: 17-Oct-2011 by All Abilities

Basketball, Lawn Bowls, Ten Pin Bowling, Table Tennis, and now Soccer!

The Maccabi Victoria Jewish Care All Abilities Group are revelling in the latest sport added to their ever-expanding list.

The Soccer Clinics were established in May 2010 as another initiative for the All Abilities Group- a joint project of Maccabi Victoria and Jewish Care which has successfully combined resources efforts and committee members to give opportunities for a group of people of all abilities a chance to learn soccer skills and play games.
These clinics have been supported by Access Unlimited (City of Stonnington &
Glen Eira) and the generous sponsorship of the Theodore Herzl Club which has assisted with expenses of the establishment of these soccer clinics, and have been enhanced through the sourcing by Access Unlimited of great and much loved coach Gorgi.

Several All Abilities Soccer Clinics have been run over the past year, with
10 -15 participants attending each Clinic. These clinics were initially held at indoor venue Orrong Romanis and more recently, to everyone's delight, on outdoor fields at Caulfield Park side by side other Maccabi teams. Thank you to President, Sam Gamsu and the North Caulfield Maccabi Junior Football
(Soccer) Club for their support in assisting with securing these outdoor playing fields.

Kevin Milstein, a big Maccabi supporter and great volunteer in the Soccer Club has also been instrumental in helping set up the recent Soccer Clinics at Caulfield Park and is very keen to get more involved with the All Abilities Group. Through 'The Reagan Milstein Foundation' Kevin has already kindly donated soccer balls, soccer tops and soccer shoes to the Group who were delighted with these donations.

The most recent Soccer Clinic for this season finished on Sunday 25 September with a game against the Doveton All Abilities group. This event was greatly enjoyed by the 20 players who attended.

The skills of the All Abilities Group has greatly improved since its establishment, and there is no doubt that they definitely 'Get a Kick out of Soccer'
