Cranbrook’s Klassen twins love soccerPosted: July 29, 2012

Despite a weekend BC Summers Games loss against Fraser River-Delta, the Kootenays (Zone 1) demonstrated a strong work ethic and teamwork skills in Saturday’s soccer match.
Twelve-year-old twins, Jovon and Jordon Klassen, who both play for the Kootenays, said they have a real passion for soccer.
“Our future goal is to become professional soccer players,” said Jovon.
One twin described his role model as his older brother Kalvin, while the other said that his role model is his father. In terms of soccer players that they look up to, one twin said that Kaka was his choice, while the other declared Fernando Torres to be his idol. The twins feel that their greatest achievement is “making it out to the BC Summer Games.”
Residents of Cranbrook, the Klassen twins have been playing soccer since the young age of four, and the twins also enjoy skiing and swimming. They describe their coach as kind and friendly.
“Our coach does not get mad at us when we miss a shot, but rather encourages us kindly throughout the game,” they said.
Furthermore, the Klassen twins are able to balance their passion for soccer with their studies. When asked to describe how they feel in Surrey, they said, “We really like it here.”Tags: BC Summers GamesJapreet LehalJovon and Jordon KlassenKootenays (Zone 1)Soccer
