EKC announces support for Sam Steele Soccer TournamentPosted: June 14, 2012
East Kootenay Community Credit Union (EKC) is pleased to announce their support for the Kootenay East Youth Soccer Association (KEYSA) and their upcoming Sam Steele Soccer Tournament. In addition to donating $3,000 for the tournament, EKC has committed $1,700 annually for KEYSA through 2014 bringing their total contribution to $8,100.
According to Joanne Lees, KEYSA’s Sam Steele Soccer Co-Chair, “We are delighted to receive this generous support from East Kootenay Community Credit Union. For the Sam Steele Tournament we have 35 teams taking part, ranging from our local KEYSA teams as well as teams from Creston, Nelson, Castlegar, Elk Valley, Columbia Valley, and Alberta. This support means a lot to us because KEYSA is a volunteer-based organization of parents. We work closely with the Cranbrook and Kimberley soccer associations to develop and engage the youth and parents of our region with the fun and team-based sport of soccer.”
Diane Baher, Senior Manager of EKC’s Cranbrook Branch adds, “East Kootenay Community Credit Union is a proud supporter of KEYSA and the Sam Steele Soccer Tournament. We are really happy to promote and support youth soccer, an inclusive sport that enables children in our community to be not only physically active, but also part of a team. We encourage everyone to join in the fun during the festivities this Sam Steele weekend and cheer on our local teams as part of the KEYSA Sam Steele Soccer Tournament taking place June 16-17.”
Over 600 soccer players and their families are in Cranbrook. Competition is fierce as some teams have an established rivalry and some teams will meet for the first time.
Soccer games start at 8am Saturday morning at Moir Park, with action continuing all day Sunday. Schedules are available at EKC (920 Baker St. Cranbrook), at Moir Park, or at www.kootenayeastsoccer.com.
