The CVSA is excited to announce a partnership with EPIC Sport Management Society. EPIC has been contracted to run this summer's Soccer Camps as well as the Fall Academy. EPIC was formed as a means to create programs that will help the development of the soccer, and those individuals involved in the sport on Vancouver Island and beyond. EPIC is an acronym for Environment, Patience, Independence and Consistency. These four, interconnected, core development values are a reflection of the organization's philosophy.
If you would like to learn more about EPIC you can go their website at http://www.epicsport.ca or on the Read More link below.

As most of you already know, our club is run almost entirely by volunteers. Without the coaches, team managers, Board of Directors, club executive and many others, our club would not exist and the many kids in the Cowichan Valley that love to play soccer would have to look elsewhere to develop their skills and join soccer teams. Too often, I think, we take all our volunteers for granted.
Yes, coaches and those directly involved with the teams our children play on usually receive recognition from their players and parents at some point during the season. However, how many of you stop to think about the contributions made by the less visible volunteers in our club, and perhaps give them a word of thanks? A prime example of such a volunteer is our Concession Manager, Danielle Clegg. She has volunteered her time generously for numerous years and, by doing so, has generated thousands of dollars for our club pay. This in turn has helped our club keep registration fees the lowest on the Island.
Danielle did recently receive a note of recognition which I'd like to share with you.
I want to send out to Danielle, who runs the Cowichan Valley Soccer concession each Saturday at Sherman Rd fields! You always have a smile on your face, you have to "train" new people each week for three different shifts! You have been spotted for having compassion and a love for soccer! Thank you so much for what you do! As a parent of two kids in soccer I really, really appreciate what you do. Thank you! All soccer parents out there, please swing by the concession and just say thank you. I really feel her hard work of volunteering goes unnoticed.
