Rick Sandman

Rick has dedicated his life to youth development. He's the first person in the building and the last one to leave and has been for several years. He's single-handedly revamped multiple sports and is open minded to any and all innovations around them. Rick is responsible for over 400 children having access to youth sports on a paid and scholarship basis. He helps raise money to make sure under-privileged children have access to sports to teach life skills. He steps in for any coach that is unable to make a practice or a game and helps make sure they are doing what is right for their team.

As a foster mom, I had a 7 year old with ADHD. Rick took him into basketball and showed him what a team looked like. He introduced the sport to him and helped give him a way to exert his energy and use it in a positive way. This child is now thriving at school thank to this outlet and Rick's guidance. Mine is just one of the many children he's affected.

When I think of the perfect coach, I think of Rick Sandman. We are so blessed to have him, and he would be the perfect honoree for Irish 31!
