The Fort St. James Secondary School fields were overrun with more than 700 youth soccer players from Fort St. James, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake and Fraser Lake on May 23 during the Fort St. James Youth soccer tournament for 5 to 10-year-olds.

Dave Birdi, Fort St. James Youth Soccer, said, “The club believes every player deserves the best possible soccer experience. Whether the kids dream of playing for Canada’s National Teams or simply want to have fun with their friends, taking the right approach to the game when children are young sets the stage for a lifetime of enjoyment.

“Next up is the Divisional Tournament held in Vanderhoof, June 20 where players between 11-18 years-old will be competing, Birdi said.

“(In Vanderhoof) the level of the competition is taken one step higher with more focus on strategy and tactics, and winning top places for trophies.”
