The following two teams get a great big shout out for being excellent citizens. I don’t know where they are in the standings of their league but I know in the standings of life they are at the top.
The JDF U14 Boys and U16 Girls (both gold) teams, coached by Darcy Smith, had their entire roster volunteer to help Santa’s Anonymous. Above is the photo of the team who on Sunday, December 10th used funds that they had raised to buy two gifts each for Santa’s Anonymous. Together, they helped contribute to Christmas gifts for 64 local youths. It was truly amazing to see both teams working together and having a great time giving back to our community!
While these two teams gave tangible gifts to children the leadership of these two teams has ensured that soccer is also giving these 32 youth important life skills such as leadership, teamwork and understanding their part in the community. Thank you! And I know the two teams and coaching staff would want us to point out you can still contribute today.
Congratulations on being the last Footballers of the Week for 2017!
