Football volunteers put in massive amounts of hours each year

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the coaches, trainers, managers and parent, grandparent, sibling, extended family volunteers

Dear Editor,

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the coaches, trainers, managers and parent, grandparent, sibling, extended family volunteers involved in Sylvan Lake Minor Football. Thank you also to Steve Dills and Stuart Fullarton who give the boys plenty of recognition in the Sylvan Lake News.

This is an amazing organization where these people put in massive amounts of volunteer hours each year so our boys can play the game they love. The passion is obvious in each of these volunteers and we are proud to be a part of this league.

The boys are given all of their equipment and are only charged a small fee for joining, making it a very affordable sport. The hours of practice the boys put in keep them in great shape and football becomes a great stress reliever for them.

I would like to wish the Lakers players who were in their last year lots of luck in the future and we look forward to another great year in 2014!

To all the Sylvan Lake residents who supported Sylvan Lake Minor Football through the purchase of the football discount card — don’t forget to use it and support the businesses in town who have given great discounts on goods and services!

Tami Theriault,

Sylvan Lake
