New Video Highlights Bobadilla Summer Soccer Academy

February 4, 2016

The Bobadilla Summer Soccer Academy addresses a number of critical issues among New Brunswick’s children:

  • Only 19% of children meet the recommended minimum level of daily physical activity
  • 48% of New Brunswick’s children and teen are obese compared to 21% nationally
  • 50% of New Brunswick’s children live in neighborhoods with no exercise facilities.

This video highlights the positive impact this innovative program is having on our city’s youth. New Brunswick Tomorrow along with The Bobadilla Summer Soccer Academy is coordinated by Lieutenant Mike Bobadilla of the New Brunswick Police Department. New Brunswick Tomorrow is a proud supporter of this program along with our partners from the Rutgers Community Health Foundation and the N.J. Department of Children and Families.
