He made it….
We were keeping quiet about it until we knew for sure, but over the last 3 Friday nights, Sam has been attending the try outs for Kelowna United U12 Boys. He played over the summer for them, but this was the real deal. Started out with abround 90 boys all fighting for a place, more than we were expecting, that needed to be whittled down to 30. There were 6 coaches all grading the boys, each week “culling” them as we went along.
At 6.30pm, last Friday the group was split into 2, when the roar went up from Sam’s group, it was job done. He and 2 of his mates all made the grade.
So, we have a soccer, or football star in the making, it seems. early days, I know, but he’s on the way. Now we just need to find the cash for it. Some travelling is now going to be required, maybe even down into the U.S., which will be interesting….
