Laura Lockhart

The Sooke Soccer Club’s President Laura Lockhart is this week’s Footballer of the Week.

Thousands of people from all over the island will soon get to enjoy artificial turf in Sooke and it is in large part due to the efforts of the Sooke executive with President, Laura Lockhart in charge.

After the club managed to secure $1 million to get the project underway in April, they kept raising money for extra amenities such as lighting, fencing and goals on wheels to name just a few. The turf is laid, the lights are bright and the fencing is due to be finished this week. The design includes a softball mini-field too so it won’t just be soccer than benefits from this project.

Laura has not only been active on the Sooke board she has also coached her oldest daughter up until two years ago when she moved from vice-president to president. Plus she is a player with the Sooke Jaggers Over 30s.  Sadly she just learned her season has been cut short due to injury but I’m sure she will still figure out a way to kick a ball on the new turf when it opens later this month.

Congratulations Laura Lockhart Footballer of the Week, your energy inspires us all!
