Dave Shuster is a current Backyard Sports Cares Board Member. Although Dave played soccer competitively throughout middle and high school, his fondest sports memories from his youth are of playing pickup street hockey and touch football for hours on end with his friends after school when soccer season ended each fall. These experiences have inspired his participation in Backyard Sports Cares, where he has been a board member since BYSC’s inception in 2011 and its treasurer from 2011 to 2018. He and his wife Karen have raised three children, all of whom have worked for BYSC’s programs serving young athletes. Currently a principal at Friedman LLP, where he represents tax payers, Dave has also served as a board member and treasurer for other nonprofit athletic organizations, including the Scarsdale Youth Hockey Association, the Scarsdale Baseball Club, and Maroon and White (a parent booster organization supporting Scarsdale High School athletics). He is also a founding board member of the Scarsdale Schools Education Foundation and its treasurer since its inception in 2011, among other community volunteer leadership roles. Critical to our success, Dave’s considerable non-profit financial expertise has provided BYSC and Board Members with valuable insight and knowledge associated with the financial side of running a non-profit organization.
All proceeds from our 2019 Benefit Gala will fund our community sports programs, which will allow more young athletes with limited access to sports and afterschool activities to attend Backyard Sports Cares programs.
