Indoor Soccer Success!
By Deidre Macpherson, Athletics Director
Our Grade 7-8 indoor soccer team showed resilience and an amazing 'can-do' attitude from day one. We had practices in freezing temperatures outside, contending with snow and darkness; then a snowstorm had us move inside to practice in the gym which presented its own challenges with space. Through it all, our team was nothing but positive and hard-working.
On tournament day, Nov 21 at The Hangar, our schedule was a tough one, and had us facing top tier teams throughout round-robin play. Again, our team progressed all day with their skills and strategic play. They said things like, "this is my first team I've ever been on and I love it!" "I love soccer," "we are "getting better every game" and more growth mindset statements all day long.
They won their final two games with great passing and staunch defense and finished the tournament as SSAF Consolation Bracket Champions!
Coach Sophie and I are so proud of the team and their incredible team spirit and athletic development over the season. Thank you: Siena, Sofia, Sage, Emma, Eva, Kennah, Zoe, Francesca, Sasha and Scarlett!
