The Northern community of Quesnel played host, for the first time, to the European Football School’s Spring Break three-day mini soccer camp March 16, 17 & 18. The camp was held in B.C.’s largest Free-Span Indoor Artificial Turf facility in Quesnel, an impressive venue. It was noted by Head Coach, Saibo Talic, and assistant coach, Steve September, that many of the 55 players who took part in the camp, were quality players who showed lots of potential. Thank you to the Quesnel Youth Soccer Association and its new Technical Director, Gilbert Schotel, for coordinating the camp and inviting us to meet Quesnel’s youth soccer community. Many thanks also to Quesnel resident, Christine Lamarsh, for her great work in organizing registration for the camp. It should be noted that camp participants and twin sisters, Shayla and Andie Smith, both U16 players from Quesnel, have been travelling 700 km to North Vancouver every 2 – 3 weeks to train 5 -6 hours each weekend with the EFS year round program. Saibo is very impressed with these two players and recognizes their dedication and commitment to the sport of soccer, and the ongoing support their parents, Graham and Christine, provide to them by making that 6 hour drive each way. We look forward to continuing our soccer relationship with Quesnel Youth Soccer.
