Community Spirit through Sports, Lewiston, Maine

Lewiston, Maine

Story Narrative:

How do sports bring people together in your community?

"Sports are nice because it's something that everyone can identify with. My dad is a retired soccer coach and he enjoys going to see college games and high school games and even little league games because he can kind of follow the progression and see how skills develop and stuff like that. It's really, it's interesting to see because he'll be there and he's about 70 now and then there will be people of all ages there. It forms a real community spirit that carries through and I think that the people that participate in sports sense that spirit and then recreate it as they continue to play throughout the years."
