The fairy-tale never ends… Our BU15 Force won the silver medal at the Hollandia Cup Div II tournament. Force finished first in the round robin to advance directly to the final. They put up a valiant effort but ran out of energy and ended up being a goal back in the final. All around #SWUPROUD to our Force Boys! Well done fellas. #SWUPROUD #FORCEPROUD

Our G05 Premiers traveled to Kelowna, BC for the Canada Day Tournament and well… were placed in the top tier at U13, playing an age above in a table of 6 teams from BC and Alberta! Hitting the practice pitch late afternoon on Friday, they were all struck by the intense sunny heat that is the hallmark of the Okanagan Valley. But, the Premers have their own hallmark – hard work! They shook off the heat and focused on the task at hand. By the end of the weekend, hard work (as it always does) turned into success….
It all went down Father’s Day weekend! The GU12 Selects 05 claimed the gold medal at the KEYSA Sam Steele Tournament in Cranbrook.

Our Selects finished the tournament undefeated & only conceded 1 goal in 4 games! Well done Selects – upward and onward! #SWUPROUD

In January, our Premiers 05G headed to Saskatoon for the SISCO 9v9 tournament & they experienced success at every turn! Organization success; the management team for the tourney was on point. Heather, Emma, Andrea, and all those who supported us with the food, scheduling, and planning did a very good job keeping everything on track and the team well fed and rested. Experience success; Latoya’s tweet (@swupremieres05) summed up the weekend quite well from a soccer perspective: “5 games, 3 days, 4 wins, 1 loss, 23 goals for, 4 goals against, no injuries, stronger bonds, great memories”. Diving into those…
