Teck & Canada Soccer have announced the recipients of the 2018 Teck Community Initiative program, an initiative that provides soccer associations in communities where Teck operates with an opportunity to receive a $2500 grant to enhance soccer programming and ultimately encourage local youth to be active. In total, four soccer associations in Teck communities receive grants each year through the program.

The program, now in its fifth year, is administered by Canada Soccer. Teck has been a proud partner of the Canada Soccer Association since 2005.

In 2018, the following soccer association will receive a $2500 grant:

Merritt Youth Soccer Association (Merritt, B.C.)
In Merritt, the funds will be used to purchase new equipment and to go towards field repairs necessary for providing a quality training and playing experience for the club’s members. The funds will also offset other costs which can be reinvested in coach and referee development.

Fernie Youth Soccer Association (Fernie, B.C.)
The Fernie Youth Soccer Association will use the grant funding to expand and develop their referee program with the goal of expanding the number of home officials. Being able to draw upon local officials will not only develop local talent but will also enable financial savings and improve scheduling.

Fort McMurray Youth Soccer Association (Fort McMurray, Alberta)
Purchasing quality equipment, training aids, and basic gear necessary for a safe and effective training and competitive environment is a necessity for the club and its families as they continue to rebuild their club and community following the devastating 2016 fire in the city.

Sparwood Minor Soccer Association (Sparwood, B.C.)
The Sparwood Minor Soccer Association will be using the grant to increase their ability to operate independently by building their own equipment storage facility. This infrastructure investment will support the continued growth of the soccer association.

About Teck and Canada Soccer:
As a sponsor of Canada’s National Teams, Canada Soccer’s Toyota National Championships, and Canada’s largest grassroots soccer program, Active Start Soccer Fests, Teck is committed to promoting excellence in the sport of soccer from local communities to the national and international stage.
 

Canada Soccer and Umbro have proudly unveiled the latest #CanadRED home jersey for Canada Soccer's National Teams. Presented with the powerful words drawn from Canada’s national anthem - On Guard For Thee – the new jersey represents a dynamic and diverse nation from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Those four words will serve as a reminder of the nation that Canada represents every time the new jersey is worn in international competition.

The jersey is also inspired by one of Canada’s most symbolic emblems, the Canadian maple leaf.  That leaf is featured prominently on the front of the jersey along with the clean classic lines that have come to define an Umbro Canada Soccer kit.

The new home kit is available now from the official Umbro Canada Soccer store via CanadaSoccer.com.

The back neck of the jersey features the Canadian flag in pride of place while the now iconic Canadian soundwave - representing the Canadian national anthem, inspired by Canadian supporters - remains prominent on the left hip.

The new jersey will debut on field by Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team as they face reigning Olympic champions Germany at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton on Sunday 10 June 2018.

The jersey is made from spun polyester which is a fabric offering the tactile handle of a cotton fibre with all the benefits of a high performance polyester yarn for the best temperature management. The jersey also features ergonomic cut lines across the upper arms and shoulders for ease of movement along with tonal mesh venting under the arms for added comfort.

Canada Soccer's custom and distinctive "Les Rouges" font for lettering and numbering will continue to be featured. Each character symbolizes the strength of ice that is precisely chiseled to bring Canada's northern beauty to light. At the same time, the type face embodies the determination and resilience that Canada Soccer's national teams demonstrate each time they step on the pitch to represent their country.

In addition to being available online now, the jersey is also on sale at Canada's home matches, starting with the Canada v Germany match at Tim Hortons Field on 10 June.  

Canada Soccer has partnered on a new parent education campaign promoting a multi-sport approach for children. Built around a captivating video PSA and a companion website it features elite Canadian athletes who support the multi-sport approach.

Funded by the Canadian Olympic Committee, the video and website are the product of a unique collaboration between Canada Soccer and multiple sport partners including Baseball Canada, Canada Basketball, Hockey Canada, and Active for Life.

The goal of the initiative is to convince parents to encourage their children to participate in a variety of sports and physical activities and thereby avoid specializing too early in one sport. Research suggests that playing a variety of sports and physical activities in childhood leads to better skill development, less injury, less burnout, and less dropout in the long term.

“Canada Soccer supports the multi-sport method and its place in long-term athlete development,” says Canada Soccer Director of Development Jason deVos. “A well-rounded experience in sport has been proven to lead to higher physical literacy and sustained involvement in physical activity over early specialization.”

To demonstrate the strength of a multi-sport approach, the PSA shows athletes world-class athletes like Men’s National Team player Nik Ledgerwood along with Marie-Philip Poulin (Hockey Canada), Mike Soroka (Baseball Canada), and Miah-Marie Langlois (Canada Basketball) performing tricks and skills from sports other than their specialized sport.



 

“The research shows that specializing too early in one sport frequently leads to children getting injured and burning out, and some start to quit sport altogether,” says Richard Monette, Managing Director at Active for Life. “There is growing evidence that kids who play multiple sports through childhood and adolescence tend to stay active longer, and more of them go further in competitive sport.”

The campaign website references leading studies and expert statements on the importance of multi-sport, including the consensus statement of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine.

About Active for Life:
Active for Life is a Canadian not-for-profit initiative founded by B2ten in 2012 to help parents give their children the right start in life through the development of physical literacy. Activeforlife.com provides parents, educators, and coaches with fun activities, engaging articles, and free resources to get kids active so they develop fundamental movement skills and confidence.
