NJ SPORTS FITNESS & WELLNESS ATHLETES OF THE MONTH – JUNE 2012

Kelci Smesko

Saddle River Day Senior

Ridgewood Senior

Golf

Lacrosse

By Jessica Quas At age 14, Edelman became the youngest to win Bergen County’s individual championship and was chosen as North Jersey Golfer of the Year. Since then, he has succeeded a great deal in his high school career, just this month shooting for eight birdies, three bogeys and five under par to win the NJIC Championship, leaving a legacy that may remain the tournament’s best score for years to come. The Saddle River Day Rebel who encourages and inspires his entire team to excel, recently signed a letter of intent to play golf for Bucknell University beginning in Fall 2012 and is currently qualifying for the US Open.

Luke Edelman

By Jessica Quas The NJ Player of the Year and tri-captain has helped her fellow Maroon’s win the past two Tournament of Champion Titles and led them to a 46 game winning streak versus NJ schools before losing to Glen Ridge in April. On Senior Day, Smesko scored in the first half on a one-on-one for her 348th career point, breaking the school record. To date, her 2012 statistics include 55 goals, 18 assists and 15 ground balls. She was ranked 10 on ESPN’s list of the top 100 HS girls LAX players in the nation. Smesko also dominates on the basketball court as a F/C with over 1,000 career points and in the classroom earning a 3.9 GPA. She will soon become a Duke University Blue Devil on a full-ride scholarship and plans to major in Business.

Junior goalie Will Collopy made eight saves. Jack Ray and Brady Wurster posted hat trick efforts to spur DBP to an easy 12-4 triumph over Bergen Catholic in the page 12

Rutherford, the 20th and final seed, not only remained in the chase for the Bergen County Baseball Tournament title, the Bulldogs also registered a no-hitter when Steve Kinzler and Rex MacMillan combined to hold Ridgewood hitless in vanquishing the Maroons 4-1. It was only the second combined no-no and first since 1977. Kinzler, who was removed from the mound with an injury in the fourth, singled in two runs in the top of the fi fth making MacMillian the winning pitcher. Rutherford also highlighted the brief preliminary round action when Chris Skowronski tossed a two-hitter as the Bulldogs ousted Wood-Ridge

4-1. Anthony Dappuzzo keyed the attack, belting a two-run round-tripper in the top of the third. In the pre-quarterfinals, Ridgefield Park’s Derek Hyland no-hit St. Joseph Regional/Montvale in defeating the Green Knights 1-0 when SJR ace Rob Kaminsky allowed only two singles. Emerson’s Joe Fisco homered, doubled and knocked in four runs to spur the Cavaliers to a 6-4 victory of St. Mary/Rutherford. In other county news, Ramapo advanced to the semifinals by improving its overall record to 22-3 with a 5-0 shutout of Emerson. Ari Kauffman scattered a pair of singles in registering the shutout win while Josh Abolt supplied the firepower by drilling a two-run double that highlighted a fourrun outburst in the bottom of the fi fth.

Women’s Baseball Legendary Career Ends at 85 By Toni Plantamura-Rossi

Genevieve “Gene” Visich, nee Castaldo, of Washington Township, passed away on Monday, May 7, 2012 from cancer at the age of 85. She was born in Mount Vernon, NY on October 18, 1926. In 1948, Visich left her Mount Vernon residence to start spring training with the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) at Opa Locka Naval Air Force Base in Florida where she was a first baseman/outfielder with the Rockford Peaches. This was the women’s baseball league that Penny Marshall’s movie, A League of Their Own, was based upon. The league played exhibition games in Miami, West Palm Beach, Daytona and other communities in the “Sunshine State: for six weeks. As a member of the Rockford Peaches, she played under the alias of Gene Travis and toured cities such as Chicago, Peoria and Springfield, Illinois, Fort Wayne and South Bend, Indiana as well as Grand Rapids and Muskegon, Michigan during the league’s regular season. Prior to turning pro, Visich played

with the Metropolitan Champion Brooklyn Celtics in 1944 and 1945, advancing to the Eastern League semi-finals in Rochester and spending 1946 and 1947 with the New York Farmerettes. Prior to signing and playing with the AAGPBL, she worked at both the American Gas Company Association and the Lummus Co. where she donned uniforms and played on their all-male softball teams. In addition to playing baseball and softball, Visich was a star on the basketball court. She placed first two successive years in the city’s foul-shooting basketball contest and finished second in the county. Visich was honored in 1993 by the Bergen County March of Dimes as Female Athlete of the Year. Her name was enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY on November 5, 1988. She considered it an honor to have been a member of Rockford Peaches and the AAGPBL as she was a pioneer in women’s sports without any brashness, just doing what she loved, and doing it well.

Phelan’s Grand Slam Boosts Lady Falcons in BCT By Leo Ciappina Saddle Brook’s Melissa Phelan captured the spotlight in the second round of the Bergen County Tournament when she blasted a grand slam as the Lady Falcons defeated Ridgefield Park 9-5. Not only did Phelan contribute to the big win, she now holds the single season and career home run record for Saddle Brook High School with 11 and 36 respectively. Phelan, a senior, has a .542 hitting average with 38 RBIs, 19 extra base hits, 22 walks, and will be looking to break Saddle Brook’s career hit record of 156, as she currently has 152 with several more games this season. She is a powerful force for the Lady Falcons as they enter the state playoffs at the number one seed with a 17-4 record. A four year starter, she has made a name for herself earning recognition within the league and county. Phelan has earned All League as a catcher for 3 years; 2nd team All County as a sophomore, and 1st team All County as a junior. She will continue her softball career at the NCAA Division I1 level, signing early to attend Stony Brook University with a full scholarship. Head Coach Darren White

There have been significant improvements in her game from last year to this year.” Seeded No. 21, Hackensack’s 1-0 elimination of New Milford was the highlight of the pre-quarterfinals that were contested on Saturday (May 19).

COACH OF THE MONTH

Wilson Keeps Teaching That What Keeps Him Going By Edward Kensik DUMONT — What keeps Rich Wilson going after 34 years of coaching? For the long-time Dumont head softball coach, he says it pretty eloquently. “To me it’s teaching,” said Wilson who is also a teacher at Dumont High School. “I love teaching and coaching is an extension of teaching.” Wilson reached one of those marks in his softball coaching/ teaching career by registering 400 victories. It came early in May with a 10-2 victory over Ridgefield Park in a Big North game. And the victory illustrated his career in team play with several contributions from his players. The defense was led by Huskies pitcher Kim Winant

who fired a five-hitter while getting offensive contributions from the likes of Lindsey Gray, Shannon Oliver and Victoria Smith, all who had two RBIs each. For the Dumont head coach the mark was not even on his radar. “I didn’t know until one of the coaches told me the other day and wished me good luck,” said Wilson who said that he is not going to hang up the burnt orange colors of the Dumont Huskies for awhile. And asked about what his favorite moment has been in coaching at Dumont, he can’t pick one. Instead he said his favorite thing about coaching is to see his players improve once they get into a program and by the time they leave the program.

“You might get only one year as a teacher, but as a coach you get to see them all four years,” said Wilson. “You get to see them improve.” Dumont has not been the only coaching job that he has held over his illustrious career. He also has been a head coach in basketball that included stops at Whippany Park, Roselle Park and Kean University or what was at the time Kean College. He coached women’s basketball at Kean College for 18 years while coaching boys basketball at Whippany Park for eight years and nine years as the Roselle Park girls basketball head coach. His last year as a head basketball coach was in 2011 at Roselle Park. He opted to leave at Roselle Park after the athletic director at the school retired. He said that it was just a good time to let go of the job. During his long career Wilson did something that is very rare today, a head coach in college as well as in high school. At that time small college coaches could also coach at high school. Today that is not the case. “There are more fulltime coaches at the small colleges,” said Wilson who lives in Union County and does not mind the drive up to Dumont. “I use to have to drive down to

South Jersey for recruiting after practice (at Kean College).” At the time in 1977 when he first starting coaching at Kean, women’s sports was just getting in gear and there were no full-time coaches. And one of the biggest differences in softball from when he started coaching back in the 1970s to today is the pitching. “Back then there were only a few windmill pitchers,” said Wilson who added though that the fire in the girls in softball has not changed. “They are very competitive.” And another difference from when he started is that the parents’ feelings have changed based on the college scholarships. “The parents are definitely more involved to get money,” said Wilson. “Trying to get scholarship money is very slim.” Wilson said that the school district has a sports parents’ open house before the start of each season where the coaches talk to the parents. And he does not see much difference in coaching the boys and girls. “For both its teaching the fundamentals,” said Wilson who admits there is one difference. “I do allow the girls 10 minutes to chit chat while they are stretching,” said Wilson.

Lodi’s Almonte Races to Gold Medals in County Debut By Matt Hazen Fernando Almonte, in his junior year at Lodi High School, has taken his newly learned sport by storm. In his brief time as a competitive track and field athlete for the Lodi Rams, he has already become the best hurdler in the school’s history. In his most recent competition, Almonte placed first in the 400M hurdles, 110M hurdles and 200M dash while breaking his school record in the 400M and 110M hurdle events with times of 55.02 and editor@sportsfitnesswellness.com

14.6 respectively. This is even more impressive given his lack of experience in hurdling and the distinct disadvantage of not having a track to practice on due to renovations to Lodi High School’s track. So far this season, Fernando Almonte has relied purely on his exceptional athletic ability and has become one of the best track and field athletes, not only in Lodi High School’s history, but in the state of New Jersey. His first competition in the Bergen County Track & Field

Meet rewarded him with gold medals in the 400-meter dash (50.10) and 110-meter high hurdles (15.42) plus a silver medal in the 200-meter dash (22.92). Pascack Valley’s Ben Malone made history when he became only the second runner to race to gold medals in the 400, 800, 1600 and 320-meter runs in the same meet. His grueling schedule had lifted the Indians into first place before an inadvertent thrill of victory with a tossed baton dropped them into a second place tie with Indian Hills, giv-

ing Ramsey the B Division boys’ team title. Double winners in Division A of the county meet were Jabrill Peppers (Paramus Catholic), Christian Costello (Don Bosco Prep) and Evan Bartlik (Ridgewood) while picking up two gold medals in Division C were Joannus Toumazou (Ridgefield) and Daniel Gaspar (Lyndhurst). Johnny Malespina (Park Ridge) and the Hasbrouck Heights duo of Roland Gamez and Anthony Sidel while Wallington’s Dominick D’Agostino tripled. page 21

A Fresh, New, and Intriguing Way to Do Kids’ Sports “The Sports Edge” with Rick Wolff can be listened to every Sunday morning from 8am to 9am on Sportsradio 66 WFAN.

Danny Bernstein, Founder of Backyard Sports in White Plains, NY

By Rick Wolff Danny Bernstein grew up on Long Island where he played a variety of sports, most notably soccer. He was the goalkeeper on the Roslyn HS team which won the first NYS HS championship. Danny then went onto Amherst College where he continued playing soccer, and captained his college team. After graduating, he spent a number of years in the family business. But then, a few years ago, he had a revelation that he wanted to get involved

in sports again, and also, give back to sports in some way. He did just that by creating a company called Backyard Sports, (www.byardsports. com) which allows kids to enjoy playing sports while eliminating the outside pressures of parents, coaches, travel teams, and so on. The result is a unique program where youngsters “mix and match” in something akin to the old standard of pick-up games, where you find yourself playing with kids from all

over. The idea, of course, is for the youngsters to make new friendships, learn how to become a leader, and most importantly, to enjoy playing sports without feeling that it’s all about winning all the time. Kids find this approach refreshing and liberating. So do their parents. Each session starts with one of the “teaching coaches” at Backyard spending a little time instructing the kids on a particular skill or drill. From there, teams are selected, and play begins. Like when we were kids, these youngsters pretty much regulate themselves — there’s no need for refs or umps, and of course, there are no league standings or playoffs. It’s all about enjoying the game to-

day…the other stuff is more for the parents anyway. We had a number of calls on the show this AM all praising what Danny has put together. Maybe, just maybe, parents are beginning to wake up to the reality that kids really need to first develop a passion for their sport before we can expect them to spend 10,000 hours trying to become a pro at it. And that passion is ignited by kids having fun…the kid of fun that Danny Bernstein is advocating. In short, it would seem we’re looking ahead to the future by going back to the old standards of fun from the past.

Irish Whisper Held 3rd Annual Irish Whisper Walk for Hope Lymphomathon in Memory of Danny Kane By Jessica Quas

profit organizations all over the United States and for various causes. The Kane family members have devoted their lives to carrying on Danny’s wishes of “helping the next guy.” By doing so, they participate in the Lymphomathon, which is a non-competitive 5-K walk in which lymphoma survivors, caregivers, friends and communities gather to celebrate, honor and support one another while raising funds for lymphoma research and programming. Each year the New Jersey Chapter of the Lymphoma Research Foundation holds the Lymphomathon in West Windsor, New Jersey. Several teams around the area walk in memory of, or in support of their family and friends who are diagnosed with lymphoma. The Irish Whisper began walking in 2007 and started with a group of 13 people. Year after year, the team continued to grow. It began with 72 members in 2008 then grew to 109 in 2009. The Irish Whisper took the long trek to West Windsor to join the Lymphomathon to raise money and awareness to help find a cure for lymphoma. That same year, the Irish Whisper took first place in the state of New Jersey for fundraising for the second year in a row, and fifth place in the United States, raising over $22,000. Because of the Irish Whisper’s outstanding support in previous years, the Lymphoma Research Foundation allowed the Irish

Whisper to hold their own walk in Danny Kane’s hometown and neighborhood in which the Kane family still resides. “If the Irish Whisper was able to get a group of over a hundred people to drive two hours away to West Windsor, there was no doubt that bringing the walk to West Milford would double or even triple the amount of walkers and money raised,” said Viktorija Bogojevski, Irish Whisper Team member. The Irish Whisper team kicked off their “First Annual Walk of Hope Lymphomathon in Memory of Danny Kane,” on a beautiful Saturday, April 24, 2010 in their hometown and neighborhood community of Pinecliff Lake in West Milford. The walk was an extreme success, bringing in over 300 attendees and raising over $30,000. Since then, the team has been dedicated to organizing an annual “Lymphomathon,” walk each April. In 2011, the team raised over $36,000 and this past Saturday, April 28, 2012, the team exceeded their goal and raised over $40,000 and counting, also adopting over 350 walkers. Because of their hard work and achievements, the Irish Whisper Team is now recognized nationally. “At some point in time, there was a group just like ours who was walking and fundraising to raise awareness and money for lymphoma research, said Patti Kane. “They helped keep editor@sportsfitnesswellness.com

Well-known throughout the community, Danny Kane was a husband, father, teacher, coach and friend. He had a great love for life and used his compassion to bring others hope and happiness through tough times. On November 22, 2006, Kane was diagnosed with Mantle cell lymphoma, a type of blood cancer that occurs when lymphocytes, or white blood cells that help protect the body from infection and disease, begin behaving abnormally. Instead of letting it bring him down, Kane saw this as an opportunity to help others. After his passing on April 17, 2009, his family continues to carry on Danny’s dream and help raise awareness and further lymphoma research through the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF). Kane’s efforts live on through his loving wife, Patti and their children Tricia, Daniel and Kathleen who call themselves the “Kane Clan.” Since his passing, they have dedicated their lives to keep his strength, faith and spirit alive through helping others with the same life threatening disease. “Our goal is to bring aware-

ness to those who know little about lymphoma and get them involved in raising money for a great cause. Raising money is so important in order to gain advancements in cancer treatment,” said Danny Kane’s youngest daughter, Kathleen Kane. “By holding these walks and raising money for the Lymphoma Research Foundation, we know we are carrying on my father’s dream to help others.” The Kane Clan formed the Irish Whisper team the year that Kane was diagnosed with lymphoma. They joined the Lymphoma Research Foundation, which was there to answer all of their questions the day Danny was diagnosed. “I remember the day we found out that Danny had Mantle Cell Lymphoma, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I picked up the phone and called the Lymphoma Research Foundation and they stayed on the phone with me for hours explaining everything and giving me all the information I needed,” said Danny’s wife, Patti Kane. “I was more grateful than ever to have them there for me, and we have remained great partners ever since.”

We hold walks and raise money for that reason alone.” The Lymphoma Research Foundation is the nation’s largest lymphoma-focused voluntary health organization dedicated exclusively to funding lymphoma research and providing patients and health care professionals with critical information about the disease. As of June 30, 2009, the LRF has funded over $40 million in lymphoma-specific research. The Foundation has also launched several special research programs, including an unprecedented initiative to study Mantle cell lymphoma, the type of lymphoma Danny Kane battled and a type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is especially challenging to treat. The LRF aims to raise awareness to those who may not know about lymphoma or even that it is a type of cancer. Their goal is to raise money for further research and to simply support and help those families in need who may have questions or who are going through the everyday struggles that those, similar to the Kane family, affected by lymphoma have to face.

well-

known among the West Milford community. He had resided in West Milford all of his life and moved to the tight-knit neighborhood of Pinecliff Lake once he and Patti married. Kane had gone through the West Milford school system then continued to teach Physical Education in the Macopin Middle School for thirty five years. He and his wife Patti also raised their three children, Tricia, Daniel and Kathleen in the same neighborhood of Pinecliff Lake. As his kids grew up, Danny coached their various sport teams, including basketball, softball and wrestling. He watched them grow into young adults, sending all three off to college to pursue their careers. It was right after his youngest Kathleen left for college that they found out the devastating news. On Nov. 22, 2006, Danny Kane was diagnosed with Mantle cell lymphoma, a rare form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. By the time he and his family had caught the disease, the cancer had already spread throughout his body. Only given a short time to live, Danny Kane saw his opportunity to bring strength to others with the same disease who had little or no hope of living. He lived by the motto, “Love life, for life is beautiful,” which his family jokes he stole from his father-in-law. “He [Danny] had always had that type of personality where he wanted to help anyone in need,” said daughter, Kathleen

Kane. “Mr. Kane was always there when you needed him, Mr. Kane never gave up on me, he really helped me as I was struggling through middle school,” are frequent comments heard from my father’s past students. He really was the strongest person I have ever known. Throughout his cancer treatments he constantly stayed positive, always looking to talk to others going through similar treatments to help keep them in good spirits. He truly is a huge role model and I know he would be so honored with the accomplishments of the Irish Whisper team,” mentioned Kathleen. Danny Kane was a walking miracle and amazingly battled the disease for a long three years before it took his life. Although he passed away, his memory still lives on in the hearts of his friends and family throughout the West Milford community. He had been an inspiration to others—before, during and even after his long battle with lymphoma. “When Danny was diagnosed we were devastated; however, my husband had a profound way of loving life,” said wife, Patti Kane. “Sometimes I think he was chosen because he used his strength and uplifting spirit to help bring confidence and life into those also affected by the disease. My children and I have dedicated our lives to continuing Danny’s legacy and possibly changing the lives of others. The Irish Whisper will make a difference in someone’s

life and in Danny’s memory…I feel it!” While Danny was receiving treatments, he had found the strength to inspire others going through similar battles. “A priest from a town near our area was also being treated at the same time as Danny,” said Patti. “On multiple occasions he had told me how blessed he was to meet such an inspirational person and that Danny’s love for life and enduring strength encouraged him to continue his battle. They became great friends and he even gave the touching sermon at Danny’s funeral.” Planning a successful event As anyone could imagine, planning and organization of the event meant a lot of details to consider. “We were ecstatic the first year we finally got to hold our own walk,” said Patti. “Thank the heavens I have a lot of great friends and family members to help. We would hold meetings every other month to get the details ironed out.” The Irish Whisper meetings held true to the Kane family traditions. The aromas of many different foods filled the air in the Kane household. Visitors could not even step foot through the door before being handed a beer. Pictures of the Kane family were prominent throughout the household, and there was no question of the family’s culWALK, continued on page 28 page 27

ture–shamrocks and the color green were present in every room. With great pride, the Irish Whisper plaques adorned the mantle. After many hugs and kisses, the Irish Whisper team was in business. “First we had to go through all the approvals from the town and book the Clubhouse for the event,” said Patti Kane. “After that, we had to deal with the event schedule and publicity of the walk. The true test was the actual walk in which we proved to everyone and ourselves that we could damn sure run a successful event.” There were many things for the team to consider, but for the Irish Whisper Team members, after holding the first two walks the tasks are now second nature. Making dreams come true After much planning and organization, the Irish Whisper Team put on their “3rd Annual Irish Whisper Walk of Hope in Memory of Danny Kane,” on April 28, 2012 at the Pinecliff Lake Clubhouse. The Clubhouse was filled with an abundance of energy and excitement. Raffle prizes filled one side of the room while the sale of t-shirts, sweatshirts, magnets, pins and dog bandanas took place of the other. Local businesses and individuals donated baked goods and breakfast beverages while a hot dog cart sat outside feeding the hungry walkers.

Danny’s niece Siobhan Carpenter, the walkers gathered for a group picture and were lead to the start of the walk by bagpiper, Jonathan Standish. Although it was a windy day, it did not stop the Irish Whisper team and walkers from organizing and participating in a great event. Friends and families gathered in support and in memory of lymphoma survivors. By the end of the afternoon, the Irish Whisper team had grown to over 350 members and raised over $40,000 and counting. “The Irish Whisper is an amazing team, and on behalf of my family, words cannot describe how touched we are to have the generosity and support from friends, family, and community members,” said Kathleen Kane. “A huge thanks goes out to my favorite place on earth, Pinecliff Lake for allowing us to hold this walk. My family has had great memories at Pinecliff Lake over the years, so to have the Annual Irish Whisper Walk of Hope here in memory of my father is so dear to our hearts.” The Irish Whisper Team would like to thank each and every walker for their time and efforts. Without the community’s help, the walk would not be possible. It is the team’s hope that the Irish Whisper will only grow in future years. All townspeople are welcome to join the Irish Whisper’s fight to help raise money and find a cure for this deadly disease. “It is truly a blessing to have everyone involved in this successful event,” said Patti. “As I always say, someone, somewhere at some point in time had spent a day walking, raising

Everyone wants to be successful, but are we willing to make the sacrifice and apply ourselves? Are you willing to make the choice of Discipline in order to achieve? It’s easy to WANT to win on the mat, the field, in the ring or the cage, but do you take the steps toward success?

How do we get there? 1. Surround yourselves with the people that influence you toward the “Right Path”. There are many, many de-

tractors out there. It’s easier for others to keep you down then for them to aspire to pull themselves up. Lose the detractors in your life. They will simply weigh you down. Negative influences are extremely harmful. 2. Strive for Balance. Everything in moderation. This applies to food, drink, sweets, socializing. If you overindulge in any one aspect, other areas of life will suffer. 3. Make training your Priority. Whatever else you have to do

needs to be done either after or before your training session. Schedule your training time as a mandatory event. Don’t give yourself excuses. Every time you miss, is another missed opportunity to get better. 4. Do not use narcotics and tobacco. Limit alcohol consumption. These toxins destroy muscle growth, significantly limit your endurance and cloud your thought process. They also de-motivate you and increase your desire to consume harm-

ful foods. 5. Form good habits. Studies have demonstrated that it takes 3 weeks to form a habit – whether it be good or bad. Stick with your routine. DO NOT MISS! Train your body and mind to crave the endorphin release that you get from training. 6. Employ the “4 D’s”. Desire, Drive, Dedication & Discipline every day of your life. Your goals will get achieved and the lessons learned will enhance your life in a multitude of ways.

Seven Ways Parents Can Support Their Child’s School By Dr. Raymond J. Huntington Studies show that parental involvement has a direct positive benefit on students’ academic achievement. If you’re looking for new ways to support your child’s school outside of volunteering in the classroom or donating to the school fundraiser, here are seven ideas on how you can help make your child’s school a better place: Join the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), or school advisory board. Your school’s PTA (or similar organization) is one of the most important links between you and your child’s school. It is designed to enhance schoolparent communication and help parents be more involved in their children’s education. PTA will help you get to know teachers and other parents and learn the most effective ways to suggest and implement changes at your school. Enrich the learning experience. Great schools do more

than teach students what they need to know for standardized tests. Find ways to enhance your child’s classroom. Talk with the teacher or principal about potential enrichment activities and ask how you can help. If your child’s teacher is interested in offering students learning opportunities outside of the classroom, offer to help coordinate and/or facilitate. Share your knowledge. Perhaps you have an interesting job, hobby or life experience that you could share with a class or group of classes. If leadership is your strength, consider devoting some time to coaching a sports team or advising a fledgling but important student group. Improve communication. At any school, good communication with families is a key to success. You could help create a parent newsletter (or improve the newsletter your school has) or start a phone tree. Ask your child’s teacher how you can help him or her stay connected to classroom parents. Be an advocate for your

school. Sometimes, being a resource for your school can be as simple as writing your school board members or legislators about issues that are important to the school. Attend a school board meeting on behalf of your grade or class or in support of an initiative. If you see an area of improvement at your school, explore the proper channels to voice your ideas. Help increase financial and other resources. Aside from school fundraisers, there are other ways you can help your school secure needed funding or supplies. Help research or apply for federal or private grants to benefit specific school programs. If you have access to materials the school needs, why not make a donation? Help other parents. If you are bilingual, you could volunteer to help translate at parentteacher meetings or translate signage and materials for the school. Volunteer to provide transportation for students or parents to attend functions they could not otherwise easily attend. If you have particu-

lar expertise, offer to host a parenting seminar and share your knowledge with other parents. With a little creativity, you can find many ways to help your child’s school be an enriching academic environment - and a vibrant and welcoming community for all students and their families. Parents who want additional information are encouraged to call the local Huntington Learning Center at 201-2618400 Ext. 515. Dr. Raymond J. Huntington and Eileen Huntington are co-founders of Huntington Learning Center, which has been helping children succeed in school for more than 30 years.

We place the student information directly into their hands and onto their computer.” Founded in 1991, Sticco started SSP after his own son, Jay, a talented baseball player at Riverdell High School, Oradell, was interested in playing college ball. After a television crew filmed one of Jay’s games, Sticco asked to see the film and requested a copy, hoping to use it to help his son reach the college coaches. Although he couldn’t use the film, an idea was born. “I didn’t know how to help my son,” said Sticco. “I knew that the film was good and that it

Owners Jay, Ron and Jim Sticco create videos that help student athletes and college coaches find the perfect match.

could really make an impact, but I didn’t know exactly what to do.” Sticco pursued the idea and began SSP that same year. Creating highlight videos— now DVDs — for any sport, SSP video professionals travel to both home and away games, compiling highlights from one, two or even three seasons. Statistics and other relevant information, including school statistics, grade point averages, and contact information, are added to the three-to-five minute long DVD, creating a complete video resume. For team sports, such as football or lacrosse, SSP uses an arrow that identifies the student’s position on the field and in the play. Other techniques, including slow motion video, showing the play from multiple angles, and even background music, complete the picture. Now, 20 years later, sons Jay and Jim also work for SSP. Jay, is vice president, the director of operations and senior videographer, supervising field personnel and interfacing with customers. Jim, who joined SSP in 2001, focuses on the technology end of the business, ensuring that SSP hardware and software is innovative and of the highest quality. Coaches interested in the service sign up to receive videos via e-mail that highlight the students playing their specific sport. In addition, SSP offers a secure video library on its web-

site, and provides its customers with DVDs to mail directly to the schools in which they are most interested. “It is important to make as good an impression as possible in as little time as possible,” said Sticco. “We know what we do is working because our customers are getting into the colleges of their choosing. Because of our service, they now have options.” SSP moved to Caldwell 10 years ago, and has created videos for student athletes from throughout New Jersey, and as far away as California and Washington. Students from both public and private high schools have signed on with the company, and their wall of fame boasts the names of many talented athletes. “We feel good about what we do,” said Jay Sticco. “We help students get into the colleges of their choice.”
