2017 was another great year for Mini Soccer in Whyte Ridge.
We had nearly 300 players aged 3 to 8 years old and 60 volunteer coaches. It was wonderful to see the players enjoying themselves and to see how supportive parents are of their teams and of this program.
We need to give a special thank you to all coaches. Mini soccer would not exist without your dedication. We always smiled when watching how engaged you are with your players. We will sincerely miss the U7/8 coaches whose children are aging out of Mini Soccer. We have enjoyed working with you and getting to know you. We hope to see the rest of you next season.
Our organizing team of conveners and our equipment manager were integral to making this season a success. We will miss Chris Magura (U7/8 Girls Convener) next year. Chris has been a source of positive energy and great advice to our organizing team over the years. He has also been a valued coach. Our other conveners, Ashley Schmidt (U3/4), Michelle Girard (U5) and Janine Carmichael (U6) were just as dedicated, volunteering as both coaches and conveners. We hope to see them back on the fields again next year. Peter Andranistakis is our amazingly organized equipment manager as well as a coach. The combined effort of these 5 volunteers helped the season run smoothly. We feel fortunate to have been able to work with this group this season!
We will need two new volunteers to join our organizing team for the 2018 season. Please contact us if you are interested.
A big thank you to everyone: volunteers, parents and players for a fun 2017 Mini Soccer season!
Registration for our 2018 season will be in March 2018. We look forward to seeing you next year!
