Despite an ominous weather forecast, our one day tournament in Cranbrook ended up a huge success.  We played 3 games against the KEYSA Rovers, the Kimberley Athletics and the KEYSA Junior rovers.  We found success in each game winning by the scores 4-1, 14-0 and 6-0.  There were 13 kids on our team and 9 different kids found the back of the net.  Even more important than that, from a coaches perspective, was how well all the kid played together.  They played their positions extremely well, they constantly looked for passing opportunities to each other, and I never once saw a selfish play from any of our players.  It truly was a delight to watch.  While all the other teams played consistently down the middle of the pitch, our team played their positions to perfection, utilizing the sides of the field and exploiting crosses into the middle at every opportunity.  It was very gratifying to see the kids begin to do everything that we as coaches have been trying to teach.  A big congratulations needs to go out to all the kids for a job extremely WELL DONE!   -Yuro Ihns  Castlegar U11 Head Coach
