U9 Development Team visits Kamloops

Yesterday our new U9 development group made the trip to SoccerQuest in Kamloops to play their very first games as a group against SoccerQuest’s U9 and U10 Groups.

In a day long event with 3 games the group recorded a comfortable win in game 1, a humbling defeat in game 2 against an older group and an entertaining 5-5 draw in the final game of a long but very enjoyable day.

A great experience for the young group who managed to play some excellent football and the games provided some excellent insight in to areas of focus for the young group moving forward.

Highlight of the day :  A wonderfully executed goal in our final game after a sweeping move out of defence with some excellent passing and a well picked out assist from Jacob resulting in a very composed first time finish from Magnus.  Decision making in the build up and composure and technique on the finish were first class !

Well done to everyone involved and a big thank you to the parents for making the trip !

He is very coachable, dedicated and his attitude is first class !  Grayson has recently stated that his next target is to make the Thompson Okanagan FC 2004 intake team and we, at Soccaskool, are all going to spend the next 6 months helping him to achieve just that !

Good luck in 2016 Grayson !
