Fort St. James hosts Mini Tournament

Saturday June 4th, Fort St. James was the host community to Mini Soccer Tournament for Kids 5-10 years of age.

Soccer, can be enjoyed by many at any skill level, and is great for a lot of reasons. The kids play sports primarily to exercise, be with friends, and improve and learn new skills.  But mostly, it’s fun – to teach, to play and compete, to develop a child’s self-esteem and confidence and to watch them grow as players and people.

The lessons learned through participating in sports can make a big difference, on and off the field.

The role of a community, volunteer-led sport organization is to provide opportunities to hundreds of kids through hours of volunteer efforts.

Through sport – children, coaches, parents, and volunteers have the opportunity to learn values such as teamwork, fair play and hard work, staying fit and giving back to the community.

Saturday June 4th, Fort St. James was the host community to Mini Soccer Tournament for Kids 5-10 years of age.

About 700 people from Fort St. James, Vanderhoof, Fraser Lake and Burns Lake packed the high school fields for the  tournament.

Fifty-four games and an opportunity for 25 youths to referee the games, plus the many volunteers made the games a success.

In the mini-tournament, scores are not kept and trophies are not given out, only participation is encouraged.
