On Saturday, Aug. 7, Mastermind Unit (MMU) partnered with the Michael Magro Foundation, a Hicksville organization dedicated to safeguarding and enhancing the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families, to translate an 18-team soccer tournament into a mega-charity event that raised close to $10,000 to benefit the Foundation and its mission on behalf of children with cancer.
The sudden spike in soccer interest generated by the World Cup games made the Mastermind Unit’s Third Annual Soccer for a Cause Tournament an obvious crowd-pleaser. A non-profit group empowering individuals to take a leadership role in their community, MMU members are challenged to leverage their skills by creating new ideas, helping others and serving as catalysts for change.
The 13- and 14-year-old Cardinal Baseball teams competed in a split squad game on July 30 at historic Doubleday Field in Cooperstown. The boys prepared for the trip all spring, participating in numerous fundraisers and raffles throughout the year so as to maximize their experience.
In addition to playing on the field, a field where hundreds of Major League players and future Hall of Famers also played, the trip included a tour of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
Training camp for the 11-year-old Hicksville Crusaders is now in full swing. Marty Ketelsen is beginning his seventh year as head coach for this group of Crusaders. Once again Peter Capel, Kevin McPartland, Rob McBride, Steve Delaney and Tom Fleming have returned as assistant coaches to help Ketelsen with the team.
During the first few weeks, the focus will be on conditioning. In this way, the boys will be well prepared for the vigors of what they are about to face. As the team gets further into training, the emphasis will be on techniques: blocking, tackling as well as running and passing plays will be the order of the day.
Centre Island Beach will be the stage for the Supervisor’s Cup, an NCAA Division 1 Women’s College Soccer Showdown and Soccer Festival on Saturday, Aug. 21, at 7 p.m., according to Town Supervisor John Venditto. Hofstra University and Marist University Women’s Soccer Teams will square off and showcase some the area’s best female soccer talent. Admission is free, but those in attendance are asked to bring two cans of food to support Island Harvest and the fight against hunger.
“Soccer is an extremely popular sport, and the talented women of the Hofstra Pride and Marist Red Foxes take it to a whole other level of excitement,” said Venditto. “This game coming to the Town represents the widespread appeal of the sport. It should be very popular with local residents, who enjoy seeing soccer played at a very high level.”
