Red Bulls conduct clinic for special-needs children in Hoboken

HARRISON, NJ– The New York Red Bulls continue to give back to local communities in the metropolitan area on Tuesday, as the New York Red Bulls Training Program, led by Training Programs Director Dave Jervis, conducted a clinic at Stevens Park in Hoboken.


As part of the New York Red Bulls Believe program, New York Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo and defender Roy Miller, along with members of the Training Program and Stevens Institute of Technology Men's Soccer team players, participated in the clinic, which saw the Red Bulls interact and speak with the children about their love for soccer and the positive impact soccer and exercise can play in their lives.

"It's really nice to share this time with special-needs children and see the enthusiasm and energy they had with us in this clinic," stated Agudelo.

For his part, Miller said: "Hopefully we can attend many events like today in Hoboken. The energy of the Training Program and Red Bulls can be seen in the smiles of the children."

Also attending the event was Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who was very excited and grateful for the efforts the Red Bulls put forth in encouraging young people to think that sports can be very important in their lives, despite the limitations that they might have.
