What a Tournament

HDCH Hosts OFSAA Soccer

Hosting an OFSAA Championships tournament takes a lot of people and a lot of work. Hosting two OFSAA Championships together? Yeah, that takes a lot of work, too!

Our school community hosted the 2019 OFSAA Girls and Boys A Soccer Championships in Hamilton. This means forty teams, almost 900 guests, and eight soccer fields at two different locations.

Although the weeks leading up to the weekend had been cold, wet and rainy, God sure smiled on us on OFSAA weekend: sunshine was plentiful and it didn’t rain at all! It was truly gorgeous soccer weather. For that, we are very thankful.

We were able to stream the games that were played at HDCH and the students in charge did a fantastic job of covering the play with great video. A shout-out to Ian DeJong as well who was a knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining commentator. Maybe a future career?

Our goal as a committee was to put the athletes first and try to make it a memorable experience for them. I am confident this happened.

I am very thankful for all the people that did so much work to put this event together. The volunteer students played a major role and showed HDCH hospitality as field hosts and First Aid helpers, along with others who worked on the website and live streaming. A special thanks to our committee who showed such expertise and willingness to do whatever it took to make this event a memorable event for the athletes.
