Wellesley's Jim Wice on The Boston Brakers Power Soccer Club

March 19, 2013

Jim Wice, Director of Disability Services for Wellesley College, was recently interviewed by Boston.com about his power soccer team, The Boston Brakers. According to Wice, the team is looking for sponsors to help them upgrade their equipment and secure more gym time.

The team is hoping for funding or sponsorships which will allow them to purchase metal chair guards. The metal guards, according to Wice, have "more kick" than the guards the team currently uses.
