Kevin Allen
Juan de Fuca District Youth Rep
Juan de Fuca Mini-Coordinator

Kevin Allen was selected as this week’s Footballer of the Week because he has been successfully organizing Juan de Fuca’s Mini-Program to the benefit of the entire Lower Island Soccer Community.  This season Kevin is coordinating too many players and coaches to be able to count them all!  Juan de Fuca is growing and Kevin is helping welcome all of these families to the world of soccer with a positive first experience.

In the LISA office we can attest to his attention to detail and being ready to adapt to the changes at the mini levels.  Kevin doesn’t complain, he gets the rules or schedules or information and gets on with the business of communicating the most up-to-date information to parents.  This season saw Kevin ensure a smooth coordination with Sooke when the LISA U10 interdistrict league was unable to get off the ground.  Everyone appreciates that this ensured there was a place for all teams to play.

Kevin is known as someone who ensures he has the right information and makes sure he gets it to the necessary people in a timely fashion.  His club describes him as amazing, super nice, always working wonders and just plain brilliant.  Juan de Fuca are happy to have found Kevin and hope they can keep him around for years to come and so do we.

Congratulations on being this week’s Footballer of the Week!

RetreatLineGraphic1

The Lower Island Soccer Association (LISA) will be introducing the retreat line into U11 and 12 soccer across the district this coming September. The use of the retreat line will encourage young players to play the ball out from the back rather than just kick it down field and away from their goal. By introducing the retreat line the LISA believes that the game will become more rewarding for players in these age groups.
