BMO Team of the Week Winner Videos
This team of remarkable young ladies never ceases to impress me with their comraderie, commitment to the sport and to each other, and their willingness to impact their club and community. Their achievements on the field speak for themselves - league champions in consecutive years, 4 tournament victories over the past two seasons, 31-1 in league play during that same period. But what impresses me the most is what they have accomplished off of the field. They have adopted the U5/6 girls program at our club, working with these young players every Saturday morning throughout the Summer in an effort to give back to the program. These young girls look up to their older peers, and many of them cannot wait for Saturday practice with the "Big girls"! They utilize fundraisers as an opportunity to sponsor community programs, collecting food donations for the less fortunate. They are very active in all club activities, from Spring clean-up day to pasta dinners, trivia nights to participating in our own Ti Amo tournament. The parents actively support all of these, which has created a true soccer family in every sense of the word. On any given weekend you will find this group spending quality time together, whether it be at a birthday party, sleepover, team dinner or movie night. They are more than teammates, they are true friends and 'sisters'. When a member of this team has suffered a loss or setback, the rest of the group can be counted on being there for support. They work tirelessly on the pitch, attending training twice a week throughout the off-season to better their game. They have made trips to Toronto to watch the National Womens Team in action, as well as to Rochester, NY to see their heroes up close. They take their game very seriously, but also remember to celebrate the joys that come along with just playing. You could not ask for a finer or more deserving group to honour as BMO Team of the Week! Forza Roma!
