Prizes offered for Canada’s favourite youth soccer teams

Coaches and parents invited to nominate their favourite team throughout the summer

A local youth soccer team could be in line for weekly prizes and a $125,000 field refurbishment, through a 15-week contest sponsored by BMO Financial Group.

For each of the next 15 weeks, coaches and soccer parents across the country are invited to nominate their favourite youth soccer team for players ages 7-12.

Weekly Team of the Week winners will be announced beginning April 20, and each week’s winner will receive $500, a set of track suits and a donation to a local charity.

A panel of judges will select each weekly winner based on four criteria: team pride, spirit, involvement in the community and passion for the game.

All of the winners will be finalists for a grand prize of a field refurbishment, a trip to a Vancouver Whitecaps FC home game and $5,000 donation to their chosen charity. The grand prize winner will be selected through a public vote beginning Aug. 1.
