"I have no challenged children
of my own, but, I enjoy spending time with children
who have disabilities. It gives you a different appreciation
of your own abilities."
- Cindy Hitchcock, Program Director
"I have had a lot of fun playing
soccer this year with my teammates. I have got better
as we played more games. I made new friends. I enjoyed
the new weight lifting program that SACC offered through
the Lake Norman YMCA. In baseball this year I even hit
some home runs 'Watch out Mark McGuire here comes Chris
Stidd.' The most fun I had was being on a baseball team
that my dad was able to coach. Thank you to SACC for
giving me the opportunity to participate in the sports
- Chris Stidd, Player
"My goal for our son, Trey, is
to be part of his community. He needs to be socially
involved in preparation for the future. I want him to
have a chance to be a participant in an athletic program
and not always the spectator."
- Kim Wise, Founder
"I think SACC is great it really
help me out a lot. Since I been in SACC I really have
enjoyed every sport. Thanks."
- Rodney Mclaughlin, Player
"SACC has meant a great deal to
Joseph. He has blossomed, learning social skills and
give and take that he will use from now on. As Joseph's
mom the thrill of watching my child participate in team/individual
sports is a most precious memory and experience."
- Pamela and Paul Klaene, Parent
"I have great respect for Kim and
all the founders of this program. I've had a lot of
fun doing this and watching all the kids grow through
all the sports I have done. I have helped with basketball,
bowling, and baseball. To see all the children grow
and get better at every practice or game is a real thrill.
I know they have made new friendships and I have made
new friendships through this program."
- Dan Pignatello, Buddy
