Stanstead Soc­cer Stars

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead


four­teen teams in the Stanstead soc­cer league had their big finale, last Satur­day, along with their cus­tom­ary BBQ. “We had 183 play­ers reg­is­tered this year, up a lit­tle from last year,” said Jan­ice Smith, the re­tir­ing pres­i­dent of the league. Sev­eral of the teams had a few too many play­ers this year be­cause there weren’t enough coaches, re­sult­ing in less real game time for the play­ers. “We even had a grand­mother coach­ing this year – now that’s step­ping up!” added Jan­ice. The league is in dire need of new coaches, as­sis­tant coaches and com­mit­tee mem­bers. Any­one in­ter­ested can call Jan­ice Smith (876-2258) or Chris­tine Al­lard (876-2621) for more info. Vol­un­teer coaches get to reg­is­ter one child for free the year af­ter they coach. Or­ga­niz­ers were very thank­ful for the use of the Stanstead Col­lege fields and the grounds of the Manoir Stanstead for games.
