Thanks to the Tracy David & UVIC Vikes Women's team, Andrew Latham, Darryl Hooker & Bays, Janelle Smith of Lakehill and Ben Hooks of Prospect Lake, the many club coaches & 200 kids for a fantastic CSA Ombrelle & BC Soccer Grassroots U8 Festival. Under the She Kicks initiative of Lower Island Soccer & the University of Victoria, the Women's Vikes Soccer team partnered with our community coaches to deliver age appropriate activities to our U8 players.Not only was the festival a vehicle for player development but also coach education. The festival was coupled with a FUNdamentals coaching certification course held at UVIC. Hopefully the participants took away the Long-term Player Development (LTPD) & U8 FUNdamanetals' priorities of FUN, physical literacy and elementary ball skills.
