On Monday February 11, SurDel was proud to host its first annual Family Day Tournament. The event was a huge success with 400 U-9 & U-10 girls and boys teams from all over the Lower Mainland in attendance. The event was hosted by our U-14 Delta Select Metro team and one of the hits of the event was the skills competition in which the Metro girls did some mentoring with the young players. It was great to see some outstanding soccer being played by the teams with a lot of smiles by players, parents and coaches. A big thank you to all the teams who participated and throughout the day the tournament committee was hearing lots of positive compliments about the event and looking forward to next years tournament. We hope to have the photos posted by early next week.

On a recent trip to Swaziland, Africa, Brian Holden took some of SurDel's old used jerseys and balls with him to distribute to the local kids. Brian, who just recently retired from teaching, went to do some volunteering and touched base with SurDel to see if we could assist in some donations from our stock. As Brian told us when he got back "the recipients were totally overwhelmed with emotion and excitement at the same time as they have never had anyone or any organization give them uniforms, let alone soccer balls". Our club prides itself on trying to provide the best possible equipment for our players to learn with but when you see the pictures and emotion from these kids it kind of puts things in perspective. Brian and SurDel are also working on sending some equipment to Haiti in the near future as well and we are very proud to assist in these endeavors.
