Sean Urda

Sean Urda

The third annual soccer golf outing in member of Sean Urda, an East Northport teen killed in a 2015 snow-tubing accident, is set for Saturday, July 28 at the Dix Hills Golf Course.

Urda was 17 years old, and finishing his senior year at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School, at the time of his accident. He was a standout student, and captain of the school’s boys soccer team.

“Join us in remembering the life of a young man whose smile lit up the room, whose laughter was contagious and whose heart warmed all those around,” reads a flyer for the outing.

Proceeds from the second annual outing will benefit the Sean Urda Memorial Soccer Scholarship, which is awarded each year to Glenn senior soccer players; players on Sean’s former travel team, Score FC; and high schoolers across Suffolk who play for their school’s team or a club team.

Recipients, according to the Sean Urda Memorial Soccer Foundation website, “exemplify the traits that Sean possessed.” He showcased “strong family values, leadership, team play, [activeness] in school and [understanding of] the value of a good education.”

There’s a $30 registration fee for the outing that includes one round of soccer golf and 14 raffle tickets. There are also sponsorship packages available.

There are two start times, 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Day-of registration will be available a half hour before both start times. Register is also open at Seanurda14.org.

Players must bring their own soccer balls.

The Dix Hills Golf Course is located at 575 Vanderbilt Parkway.
