Football teams fundraise for food bank, and their own teams

Local families accumulated 4,000 pounds of food for the Sooke Food Bank. There are a number of fundraising efforts underway for their teams.

A few fundraising efforts are also underway for the local football teams.

Tim Kearse of www.tknextlevel.com has started speed strength skill clinics on Mondays and Wednesdays, and they run from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. through until December 18. The clinics will resume after Christmas, between January 6 and 29.

For fundraising for the Sooke Seahawks, there will be a metal bin at Sooke Disposal. If you have any metal you would like to drop off or get picked up, please contact Coach Andy at 778-977-3073, or Brandon Cheng at 250-744-8145.

On January 5, there will be a phone book delivery fundraiser. For more info on this, contact Coach Andy Carrier at 778-977-3073. They are in need of more families to participate in this fundraiser.

Carrier speaks proudly of his players’ performances. On his Atom team (ages 11 and 12) there have been no concussions in the past four years — a detail he attributes to the emphasis on training that they have. Besides endurance and fitness, training also embraces bigger concepts like serving the community, putting teammates first, and focusing on discipline and authority. All in all, Carrier puts a lot of emphasis on developing what he refers to as “good team-value concepts.”

And even though it’s the dark of winter, it’s time to start thinking about registering for spring football season. Early registration isn’t up just yet, but please keep checking into http://www.victoriafootball.ca/ for your registration instructions. It will be up by December.

For more information that extends later into 2014, visit their website at http://www.sookeseahawks.com/news/sooke-seahawks-news/
