Sooke Thunderbirds enjoying the Christmas Parade

Tis’ the Season!

With the colder weather, we are hunkering down and preparing for the Christmas Season, with team spirit and community effort!

SSC got their Christmas spirit kick started with the Christmas Parade on Sunday!  Approximately 12 teams participated, making SSC the biggest group in the parade two years in a row!

Shout out to the U10 girls, their parents, and Colleen Lembcke for organizing the creation of our first ever float in the Christmas parade!  Thanks to Jason and Hillary Childs for the use of their truck and trailer.  Big thanks to all the players and parents with their blue and white jingaling bling!  Way to represent!

Christmas trees arrive this Friday and will be on sale Saturdays 9-6 p.m. Sundays- 10-6pm, Mon-Friday 4-7 p.m.  at the Fred Milne club house. All proceeds go towards field improvements.

The U16 boys played a LISA Cup Game on Saturday despite the snow and field closure. Peninsula Soccer Club was kind enough to offer us one of their fields.

Our Sooke boys played Peninsula’s U15 boys. Although Peninsula fought hard Sooke won the game 5-0 with goals from Chris Berkeley, Tie Boake and Matthew Miller.

Great goal tending from Rylin Wilsher and Bobby Nex. Way to go Shredders!
