Soccer kicked off all across Victoria this past weekend.  Congratulations to all the coaches, managers, parents and players that made it happen.

This week’s Footballers of the Week were nominated by Lower Island Soccer Association and are the Vancouver Island Wave BC Soccer Premier League intake managers, Sabrina and Zeb.

The Vancouver Island Wave play in the BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL).  The BCSPL provides an elevated level of competition for high performance players in BC; contributes to player development for the Canadian National Team; and is the recognized pathway for players to be identified for BC Soccer’s High Performance Program, Canadian Universities, US Colleges and professional play with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC.  BC Soccer were on site and were impressed with the talent they saw on the field.

For the 4th year running, the U13 intake teams played a jamboree style weekend of games and for the first time ever it was hosted on the island at the University of Victoria.

The teams played amazing but the job of the managers was the highlight of the weekend.  New uniforms, a new retreat line, nervous kids, excited parents, new TeamSnap accounts and all with a smile on their faces.  There were multiple team meals and team bonding opportunities organized with perfection!  Sabrina also organized ball kids and the 50/50 at the Women’s Vikes game and Zeb provided ball kids for the Men’s game too.   These teams also seem to have some of the best parents who helped us put up tents and were good sideline parents, we can only say thank you to the adults that made it worth putting on the Intake Festival here in Victoria.  Good luck with the league opener this weekend.

 To nominate a player, team or administrator please contact your respective organization.
