Dear PFC Families,
This week has been a big one for the Club and we want to tell everyone about it!
First, we were awarded a Canadian Tire Jump Start grant to further help support our All Abilities program. A program like All Abilities can sometimes need extra funding to off set the costs of specialist equipment, staff training or family needs. So especially at a time like this the Jump Start grant has been a great help and we want to thank the decision makes who supported this award.
Secondly, our Club Coaches continue to build a strong culture on and off the field with weekly technical meetings now announced. As all teams head indoors there's a limited ability to get staff together in-person so they will now be attending weekly technical meetings online led by Dave Benning (11 v 11 and Full Staff meeting) and Hollie Babut (Grassroots meeting). We challenge you to find a club or academy doing more to develop the knowledge and impact of its technical staff. We also know you will see a benefit to the players development.
Finally, and probably most striking of all, our Past President, Corrado Roccasalva was honored by Ontario Soccer at their Annual Centre Circle Awards with a Meritorious Award for his service to soccer. Corrado is still an incredibly active member of the Board and has given countless hours of his time and energy to make sure we're on the right path. The unique nature of this years virtual awards meant that Ontario Soccer kept it to a small, intimate event online. Rest assured we will make sure that Corrado gets plenty of attention though!
