They want to promote a healthy life style for all in the community starting from the 3-5 year olds that participate in the Mini Volts programs to adults that play in our Men’s and CoEd soccer leagues with almost 80 players, and their CoEd outdoor beach volleyball league with almost 75 players; to the winter indoor soccer leagues has over 1500 participants. With Partners like Carbone Auto, the Vermont Voltage/Bennington Sports Center were able to improve its Monument Soccer Club which involves 7 youth teams; U-8 Coed, u10 boys, u12 boys & girls, u14 girls, and u18 boys & girls.
The partnership the Voltage and Carbone Auto has made the Voltages first team able to affect the lives of young people all over Vermont through their PDL league as well as their summer camps. “Everything we do at Voltage is to be a bigger part of community, and they (Carbone Auto) support all these programs and more.” Said Bo. This country is trying to stress to our youth how important it is to have a healthy life style and the Vermont Voltage is doing the same in our community. Voltages teaches Vermont’s youth not make better life choices through sports and exercise and sports; in hope that less of our children will be involved in the drugs and crime taking over our communities. Not only trying to educate our youth but also giving them role models is an important part of setting the correct example. The Voltage first team regularly works with kids to make them better athletes, but what you don’t see is the conversations they have with the kids they coach about the important choices that are needed to be made in order to have a good and healthy life. All this does not only affect the kids in our communities but other in the surrounding area also. Children from Northern Vermont, Western Mass, and Eastern New York also have been attracted to the programs provided by the Vermont Voltage/Bennington Sports Center with the help of Carbone Auto.

Bennington Sports Center puts on a show at Williamstown Snow Fest.
Bennington, VT. – The Bennington Sports Center staff made the short trip to Williamstown's Snow Fest Sunday afternoon. The BSC set up a small 3on3 tournament as well as a power shot contest to measure the fastest shots and a juggling contest. General Manager and Voltage player/coach Bo Vuckovic and first team player Mark Benson put on a clinic on juggling with some freestyle moves. There was also a showcase on team juggling; Bo and Mark faced off against two younger voltage players where both teams passed the ball back and forth to each other only using their heads! Mark Benson said, "It was a really fun experience to come and show to the younger children of the Williamstown area some exciting tricks and skills in an effort to promote the upcoming camp in that area this coming summer. Also, to showcase just what those players can learn in the Skills Training Academy sessions located at the Bennington Sports Center was a privilege. It was definitely a worthwhile, fun filled experience and I really hope that the players enjoyed it."
