The U-15 Girls team decided that this year instead of their usual gift exchange they would sponsor a local family over the Christmas holidays. To this end the players ended up packing up food and gift items so that a Mom and her two kids would have a special Christmas morning. Great team on the field, but even better young ladies off the pitch. Merry Christmas from the girls to all the other teams, parents and DCS fans.
The DCS U18 Boys team know that we are very fortunate to have a strong support of family/friends and felt the need to pay it forward at their last youth soccer year. Immediately after playing a game in West Vancouver on Saturday December 16th, the team set up a tent at the corner of Hastings and Main. Within in minutes a line up of over 200 Downtown Eastside residents lined up and was served sandwiches, salad, muffins, cookies, coffee and juice. Warm conversations and Christmas wishes were had between all the DCS players/coaches with the Downtown Eastside residents.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all from everyone at DCS U18 Boys.
