We currently reside in Dorchester, Ontario, a small community outside of London with a great passion for sports. Our Dorchester F.C. U9 team began play in April 2017, with 12 girls coming together for their first experience with the Dorchester Competitive Soccer Club. Our start was slow, but we had 12 young athletes that were driven, determined, and coachable wanting to learn how to play.
During the first half of the season, we developed the basic skills while struggling against some of the other more established clubs. But the girls stayed positive and progressed through to the second half of the season while working hard at mastering their skills, which began to flow more naturally.
We have been extremely fortunate this year to have had my employer, Roy Inch & Sons, Service Experts, be our main team sponsor. When I first brought the idea of sponsorship to Peter Inch, there was no hesitation. He was more than pleased to help support our young girls, and we are very grateful for his generosity this season.
A great thing about Dorchester is that we always have many people who step up for the kids. Our Team Manager, Mary, who is the backbone of our team, and our assistant coach, Kristy, have both been instrumental in developing life skills while being great role models.
This season has been very successful and a wonderful experience for everyone. I am very proud of the girls and want to thank them for their hard work and dedication. I look forward to many more coaching seasons with Dorchester F.C. and helping young athletes grow their passion for soccer.
