Footballers of the Week

                       LISAAwardWinners

A big congratulations to all those who were nominated for any award this season, thank you so much for all that you do for the soccer community.

Kelsey Carrothers of Lakehill won the Lakehill Youth Official of the Year,  LISA Youth Official of the Year  and now BC Soccer’s Youth Official of the Year.  Kelsey is a hardworking and driven student-athlete. She volunteers with Lakehill as a U5/U6 youth coach working with children developing the fundamentals of soccer for youth. Kelsey has been refereeing at Lakehill Soccer Association since she was 12 years old and throughout her years of officiating has gained confidence and experience as a referee. She is now qualified as a District Referee. Congratulations Kelsey on your Triple Crown win!

The LISA Coach of the Year is a name not everyone might recognize but that’s only because she recently changed it, Janelle Traynor (nee Smith) from Gorge! Janelle is a talented individual both as a player and a coach. Her dedication to the excellence of soccer for youth has shown unquestionably through her team’s development and success. Four of her girls from her Girls Gold U12 team showed great achievement and are now a part of the BCSPL intake team! Thank you Janelle for your contributions to the development of soccer!

LISA’s Executive of the Year is not a single individual but the Gorge Soccer Association as a whole.  LISA was proud to recognize Gorge on how far they have come in the last few years. They are well-respected for their transparency. They are the first LISA club to apply for the club charter program. Congratulations Gorge Soccer Association!

Every year LISA President Tim Satterford chooses an individual that he believes embodies the LISA vision of creating a high quality soccer experience in our community. This award is called the President’s Award and long-time Juan de Fuca Soccer volunteer veteran Eunice Johnson has claimed it. Eunice is recognized as an individual who has dedicated more than 20 years to soccer in Victoria and who has had a positive effective on a countless number of players, parents, coaches, administrators and volunteers. Thank you for the many years you have invested into soccer!

Congratulations to all LISA Award Winners!
