sopbuildingphoto Brian Riddle, Athletic Coordinator at Seven Oaks Park visited The Rotary Club of Lake Murray-Irmo to talk about the extensive work the park has done to develop an extensive sports program for our community.  The sports program consists of fall, winter, spring and summer teams including sports camps in the summer and travel teams for baseball and lacrosse as well as adult sports programs.  During his tenure he has worked to develop a district wide soccer program, increase sponsorship dollars and grow the numbers of participants.  In 2014, 1500 youth participated.  Special programs include athletic scholarships and a youth scholarship equipment rental service.  They received a $15,000 grant from CDBG  to support these programs.  This is truly a community endeavor with all coaches volunteering their time and local businesses sponsoring teams and events.  The newly renovated facilities include a 30,000 square foot facility with full gymnasium, nine athletic fields, six clay tennis courts and the new Saluda Shoals Athletic complex soccer fields.   If you have any questions regarding the athletic program at Seven Oaks Park or you would like to become involved with keeping this program a success through volunteering or donations please contact Brian Riddle, briddle@icrc.net
