Sarah has been in Special Olympics since she was in her twenties. Bocce ball, tennis, basketball, floor hockey (she is the goalie)
and softball have been the sports in which she has competed, but this is her first year in volleyball. Sarah loves volleyball because, “I like to play and I like the people.”
According to co-coaches Jay and Taylor Schubert, “She is new to volleyball and she is getting better as the season goes on.”
Sarah also bowls on another league, swims, and works in a local day program.
“I feel powerful when I spike the ball. Our team has at least 10 medals with Coach Jay’s volleyball team,” said David.
Coach Jay Schubert and his daughter, Coach Taylor, have this to say about David: “He has made great improvements in his volleyball playing. He was phenomenal in the fall games and helped in our win.”
The biggest reason David likes SO is because of the friends he has and continues to make. David is also in a local day work program.
