Thank you Coach Ralph

Ralph Aiello has been a fixture on the Whyte Ridge soccer fields since before many of us even lived in the neighbourhood. For more than 15 years, he has coached all age groups from mini soccer to U18, volunteered as convener and supported our successful recreational soccer program in Whyte Ridge.

Here are some highlights of Ralph’s coaching career:
