Submitted by watchdog on Thu, 07/11/2019 - 20:51


Yes, it’s mid-July…but the damp in the air has me feeling rather “soccery”…is that a word? If you’re stuck inside, and you even gave a moment to think about that last question, you must have time for Lakehill News!

  • Fall Registration
  • “Free” Summer Drop In!
  • PowerUp FunZone Comes to Braefoot
  • Assessment Schedule
  • Congratulations Are Due
  • Striker and Goalkeeper Camps
  • And Finally…

Fall Registration Continues…

Just because you missed the early-bird deadline, doesn’t mean you don’t have any incentive to register as soon as possible. After all, late registration fees kick-in after August 21st. What are you waiting for? Visit the Lakehill PowerUp page, login and start registering.

Congratulations to the Coupers, who were the winners of the early registration draw for a family pack of tickets to the VIFC/PFC doubleheader – they registered all the way back in April! By all accounts they had a great time at the PFC game, and next time we’ll even try to arrange a home team win (VIFC upheld their part of the deal, even if the Coupers couldn’t be there!)

“Free” Summer Soccer!

Free drop-in soccer on Wednesday nights is off to a roaring start with 65 kids registered to take part. There are so many registered, we might soon have to cap registrations. But for now, there is still time to join the fun. Registration is by donation, with all fees donated to Kidsport to help needy kids in our community take part in sports. Suggested donation/registration fee is $20 and we have already topped our total from last year – great job Lakehill families! For those that still want to join in, just log-in to the PowerUp page to register.

PowerUp Fun Zone is Coming to Lakehill

PowerUp Soccer takes it role in the soccer community seriously. So much so, that they are undertaking a cross-Canada tour visiting the clubs that use PowerUp. They’ll be at Braefoot next Wednesday (July 17th) with their rolling Fun Zone! There will be soccer darts, some goodies for the kids, and a fun time for everyone. We’ve even timed the visit with drop-in soccer, so that the kids in the park that night will have twice the fun. Come join us at Braefoot next Wednesday evening between 5 and 7 PM.

August Assessments

The August assessment schedule has now been posted on the Lakehill website. Please see the details about which players/teams are being assessed, and if you have any issues or questions, please contact the Technical Director.
Congratulations Are Due

This past weekend, four pooled teams from Lakehill & Gorge participated in the Provincial A and B Cup Finals. This was the culmination of a long season and a long journey for each of these teams. Congratulations to the U14 Boys Gold, U16 Boys VIPL, U17 Girls VIPL and U18 Girls VIPL teams on amazing seasons and great tournaments. We may not have finished first in any of these competitions, but just making it that far is an accomplishment in and of itself, and we are very proud of all our players and coaches for their efforts. And let’s not forget the families behind them who also put in a load of time to get them there!

And while we are handing out accolades, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the Lakehill players on the 03 and 04 Wave teams who won it all in the Provincial Premier Cup a few weeks ago. Congrats boys – you’ve done us proud!

KeeperCulture Camps

And Finally…

For the last month, many of us have been enjoying the Women’s World Cup. Of course, not everyone had the luxury of catching all the games…they were on after all, during the work day! So for those of you who missed out, here’s a little video of some of the best goals of the tournament. It’s hard to believe we have to wait another four years for it to come around again. Enjoy!
