Over the course of May 28th-May 31st, the long awaited Canada Street Soccer Cup was held at Kinsmen Field in North Vancouver. While street soccer teams frequently come together for local, regional, and provincial tournaments, this is the first national tournament where teams from across Canada were represented.
By all accounts the tournament was a roaring success and a great time was had by all. Not to brag but we are happy to announce that team “Covenant House” won the tournament! Congratulations to all involved on a wonderful event filled with fun, friendship and fair play!
Please check out this note sent from Steve a volunteer who not only volunteers his time with us but Vancouver Street Soccer League as well.
“Ten Covenant House youth participated in this three day event in North Vancouver last week. The winning team was named Covenant House and had a nucleus of our young people. The trophy was presented at the banquet after the tournament and now resides at Drake.
The Covenant House youth were a credit to us all. As well as competing hard and skillfully during the games, they showed exemplary behavior and a positive attitude throughout. These are role models as well a terrific young people. We should be very proud of them - they are great ambassadors for Covenant House.
