All-Star Training Club (ATC) was established to provide an integrated sports program for individuals with or without disabilities where everyone, regardless of ability, is encouraged to participate on the field of athletic competition. ATC is a sanctioned Special Olympics organization and is the only program in a five-county area that offers such a unique approach to athletics where everyone is given the opportunity to become a rising star.

In early 2014, All-Star Training Club became the newest member of the United Disability Services (UDS) family. In his new role, ATC Founder Dan Lancianese will continue to work closely with athletes, families and volunteers to promote the benefits of fun and fitness for everyone.

United Disability Services is celebrating 65 years of enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by providing opportunities for full participation in the community. For more information about any of our other programs and services visit us at

2015 Coach Pitch/Kickball

2015 Coach Pitch/Kickball

The last shall be first! This certainly was the case this past Sunday at The Steel Academy, as the Warriors, who were seeded in the number 4 position going into the tournament won the ATC coach-pitch/kickball championship.

The Warriors were trailing the Irish 4-2 going into the 3rd inning. But with bases loaded, Andrew M kicked a line shot down the third base line to score three runs. Then Matt R kicked a ball into right field to score Andrew to put the Warriors up 6-2. The Warriors then added 2 more insurance runs to hold off an Irish come back in the bottom of the 4th.

In the Consolation championship, it was all Blue Devils as they posted a 10-4 win over the Knights. The Blue Devils were lead by Charles S who had three hits in the game.

In Home Run Derby it was Ryan A who outlasted two other opponents to win the first annual Home Run Derby Contest. Also worth noting was the generosity of Jake who actually won but turned down the award so the other three could compete for the title. Class act Jake.

It was a beautiful hot day with many family and friends cheering on the athletes. We had close to 150 people in attendance. I would like to personally thank all of the coaches and volunteers who made this a great season.

I would also like to thank Aaron Kurchev of the Torchbearers who was our master grill chef. Finally, thank you to all of the family members who brought out covered dishes. The entire day was filled with family friends and good old competition.
