2015 2nd Annual RVDL Santa Soccer Charity Challenge

The 2015 2nd Annual RVDL Santa Soccer 3V3 Charity Challenge 

The 2015 second annual RVDL Santa Soccer Charity 3V3 Challenge once again supporting ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development, was another great hit on Dec 22 at Canlan Sportsplex in Mississauga.  Players of all abilities attended with boys and girls, ages 7-14 being represented.  All players enjoyed either the 3 hour long morning or afternoon sessions comprising of a technical warm-up with the ball, followed by a couple of technical skills session, progressing to a 1V1 Challenge and finally finishing with the 3V3 Challenge.  Players were put through their paces and worked very hard during the challenge.  It was great to see so many young soccer players with smiles on their faces.

 

Although the participation numbers were down from last year, through the generous support of all who attended, along with a few of the parents with attending players supplying additional donations above the modest registration fee and adding in the proceeds from our Silent Auction the total raised for ErinoakKids was $2240.00.  To maximize the donation to ErinoakKids, RVDL Soccer Academy once again covered all rental and ancillary costs associated with the event.

In addition to the funds raised we collected gently used soccer shoes and uniforms that will be supplied to developing nations' children.  Many families also brought non-perishable food items in support of the Canlan Sportsplex "FIll the Goal" food drive.

We would like to thank all the players and parents that supported our event to make it so successful and especially those that contributed additional funds.

Thanks to all those that supported our Silent Auction and hope they enjoy some of those great items won.

I highly recommend RVDL Soccer Academy, my son loves it there and the coaches are great! There is a large emphasis on technical skills and the kids receive a lot of individual attention due to the coach-player ratio. The kids learn so much while having fun!

Our son's been training with RVDL for just under a year now and has developed quite significantly not only technically but also in his confidence on and off the field. This is all thanks to the positive enriching environment that has been created by Coach Steve, Coach Stefan and Team Owner Mike.
Prior to arriving at RVDL, our son had trained with a big team in Oakville - they were well over capacity and our son was frequently told he could stay on the team to train however games weren't an option because he didn't have any game time experience. Read that again. He didn't have game time experience because he wasn't offered any. From our experience in speaking with many parents out of Oakville, this is the reality and the norm.
How will your son/daughter ever develop to build their confidence and flourish in the sport they love under a " stacked team" well over capacity who's sole focus isn't your child's OWN development and growth but the team's winning.
It's just not possible.

RVDL isn't like any other club. They care about our kids, bottom line, and know how to properly train a player at each and every practice with one on one attention.
Remember parents, it's all about development and love of the game : )

We have been with RVDL for several years and can say that the training that kids receive is true European football. Our kids have progressively gotten better every year, which is what truely matters not whether teams win or lose a game. We currently have two of our three kids at RVDL, our eldest moved to the OVDL program at age 13, after being with RVDL for 6 years. He is considered to be strong soccer player on his team. This would not have been possible without RVDL’s coaches and training program.
