The Westmount U12 boys Soccer team ended their summer 2017 Season with yet another victory on Sunday, August 27th against Pierrefonds! In fact, this team made up of 19 young men, aged between 11 and 12 years old finished their season totally undefeated! This team also finished in first place of their Lac St-Louis Soccer League division – M A U-12!
There were indeed some close games over the summer but the U12 Boy’s winning streak cannot be contributed to luck alone… Rather, their accomplishment has resulted from a combination of strong coaching and leadership by the coaches, by dedication and practice invested by the players and great sportsmanship and supportive parents!
The friendships and camaraderie amongst the players was very obvious on and off the field. The players handled themselves exceptionally well during high pressure games throughout the season. Dedicated, motivated, tenacious and enthusiastic are just a few of the words to describe the players and their love of the game.
Finally, but very importantly, recognition of the outstanding volunteer coaches that lead the U12 boys’ team, Sid Farah and Reza Doost is essential. These two coaches invested so much of their personal time and energy in order to lead their team to triumph. Their commitment was abundant in offering each player many hours of training time so that the boys could further develop their proficiency and skills through a personal and honest approach. Even with sweat burning in the player’s eyes and their legs shaking from drills, our coaches only had to ask and all the players were willing to give more out of sheer esteem, respect and admiration of their coaches.
What a great season! Congratulations U12 boys team!
