DVSS and St. An­thony’s have teamed up to put a team on the soc­cer pitch.

Last week try­outs were held for a se­nior boys soc­cer team at DVSS. The team is be­ing coached by St. An­thony’s teacher Davis Easter and DVSS teacher Michael Lee.

“There was pretty solid in­ter­est, es­pe­cially given that there hasn’t been a team like this in the past,” said coach Easter.” There’s def­i­nitely some strong tal­ent, and the key is go­ing to be fig­ur­ing out how to get the team to play to­gether as a team since most of them have never played with one an­other be­fore.”

He said they came up with enough play­ers to form a squad, although there are still spa­ces if oth­ers wish to join to add depth and strength.

The team has a di­verse group of play­ers with a com­bi­na­tion of in­ter­na­tional stu­dents as well as lo­cal play­ers.

While there is no lo­cal high school league to play in, the team will be play­ing in the Adult Coed Recre­ational soc­cer league as well as or­ga­niz­ing some friendlies with U18 teams from the area.

“The pin­na­cle event for the sea­son will be Zones, which are on May 24-25 in Cochrane,” said Easter.
