Strike For A Cure - Breast Cancer Awareness Event

Dyan and Amy

The Daphne Strike Soccer Club friends and families gathered together on Wednesday October 10, 2012 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Daphne Strike Soccer Club is trying to do it's part in the community by creating awareness and raising money for this very worthy cause.  We sold custom designed "Strike For A Cure" t-shirts, headbands and bracelets to raise money and awareness.  We are asking our players to wear their pink accessories during the whole month of October, to remind people about the importance of finding a cure.  All the profits from our product sales and from our concession stand will be donated to the Mitchell Cancer Center to help fund Breast Cancer research.  

Our evenning ended with a friendly game between our Strike Coaches and our U18 Boys team.  The game was very competitve and both sides had a great time.  I think it's fair to say, that the Coaches Team was probably a little slow getting up the next morning.  Spectators saw early signs of aches and pains coming from the coaches bench,  right after the game ended.  I heard coaches asking one and other for ibuprofen and the likes.  The Coaches Team might have won the game but the U18 Boys certainly won the battle!  I think there is a re-match in the near future, so please stay tuned.

Our Soccer Camp held this past June was a tremendous success.  We had about 80 kids registered ranging in age from 7 - 17.  Everyone worked on new skills, good sportsmanship, all while having fun.  Each day had it's own theme keeping the kids excited to come back and learn.  Thank you to all the coaches, volunteers, parents and children who made this a great success.  Our coaches made it a great atmosphere in which to learn.  Looking forward  to seeing everyone out on the fields again soon.
