Peter Goldbach has been involved with Special Olympics (SO) since he was in his twenties. Today, he is 65 years old and still participating in SO. Peter likes playing bocce ball, but stated, “My feet don’t like bocce ball.”
Bowling and volleyball are the two sports he favors now. Peter will play tennis if it is held inside. He likes to compete and “beat the other teams.” Peter likes his coaches and he said of his current coach, Jay Schubert, “Jay is a good man.”
Peter is in a local day work program and is married to Ana Goldbach, who was featured as female SO athlete in the Oct. 19 – Oct. 25 issue of the Santa Clarita Gazette.
Eric Hoffman is a very busy Special Olympics athlete. He plays flag football, bowling, floor hockey (his favorite sport), volleyball, bocce ball, soccer and tennis. Volleyball Coach Jay Schubert said, “Eric hits the ball
harder than any player on our team.”
Eric is very proud of the many trophies he and his teammates have earned over the years.
