Swift Cur­rent soc­cer teams had a good run at the youth pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships held on home turf, July 5-7. The Swift Cur­rent Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion hosted both the Sask­Tel Soc­cer 4 Life out­door youth pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships and the in­au­gu­ral Four Cor­ners cham­pi­onship. A to­tal of 22 teams par­tic­i­pated in the two cham­pi­onships, and three Swift Cur­rent United teams com­peted. The Swift Cur­rent United U17 girls won gold after an ex­cit­ing fi­nal against Prince Al­bert Celtics. The fi­nal was a re­peat of their round robin game, which re­mained score­less. The cham­pi­onship was then de­cided in a penalty shootout, which Swift Cur­rent won 1-0. The Swift Cur­rent United U19 girls had to set­tle for sil­ver after their cham­pi­onship fi­nal also ended in a penalty shootout, but they lost 2-1 to Saska­toon's Aurora Ma­jes­tics. The Swift Cur­rent United U15 boys placed fourth out of six teams in the round robin, and lost 2-1 to Lloy­d­min­ster's Merid­ian FC in the semi-fi­nal. Merid­ian FC won the U15 boys cham­pi­onship ti­tle in the fi­nal against Prince Al­bert Celtics. The other cham­pi­onship win­ners were the York­ton United FC U19 boys, FC Regina Ar­se­nal U17 boys, and the Wey­burn Jr. Black Devils U15 boys in the Four Cor­ners cham­pi­onship.
