Soccer is one of my favourite sports because it brings people together and it’s so simple.
All you need is a ball, a net, a few friends and you’re all set. I love to see families and friends cheering at the sidelines and encouraging their favorite players.
The outdoor soccer season wrapped up last month and we saw a lot of our young Tyndall Park Community Centre athletes showcasing their skills. Three great teams competed in the 2016 Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association’s Cambrian Challenge Cup Finals.
One of the teams was the U13 Walls boys rec team, who played an exciting game against Southdale King. They won their game 5-3 to become league and city champions. Congratulations to the Walls Boys for your success in the tournament and for having a great season.
The other two teams were the U13 Girls rec teams Herrara and Bettencourt. In true sportsmanlike fashion, these two Tyndall Park teams battled it out against each other in the finals. Congratulations to team Herrara for winning the division championships and the Cambrian Cup finals. Equal congratulations to team Bettencourt for a great season and for playing a great game against those Herraras.
I’m proud to have so many young talented athletes in our community and I’m looking forward to seeing them all play next season. I hope you’ll all come out to cheer them on. Go Thunder!
Of course we can’t forget out all the great Tyndall Park coaches. Thank you so much for volunteering your time to teach and train these players. I’m certain that your guidance has inspired their accomplishments on and off the field.
I’m always happy to support the work done at our local community centers. They play a huge role in improving the lives of our youth. When kids stay active they do better in school, socialize with their peers and maintain healthy lifestyles. Tyndall Park Community Centre has accomplished this and has provided the kids in our communities with a place to feel safe and included.
