The Bulkley Valley Soccer Society (BVSS) is wrapping up another successful year of soccer. The Houston Division had a great turn out for participation and provided lots of fun and memories for all. The players range in age from 5 to 18, and over the season they learned about enjoying team play, while improving their soccer skills.

The youngest age group, Under 8’s, had three awesome teams that had lots of good times each week practicing and playing on the HSS field. The next age group, the Under 10’s, fielded two strong teams that practiced and scrimmaged every week on Twain Sullivan’s fields to prepare for their tournaments. Both groups competed in their three tournaments hosted by Houston, Smithers and Telkwa; all the teams played with skill, spirit and enthusiasm.

For the older groups, Under 12, Under 14, and Under 18, they got to challenge their skills once a week with league games against Smithers and Telkwa teams. You may have seen the U12’s playing at the Houston Christian School field, or noticed the U14 or U18’s games happening on the HSS field.

The Under 12’s two ambitious teams both showed determination and endurance at their BVSS tournament on June 15th. In the end it was Houston’s team “Lightning” that won a tough final game against Smithers Team 6 to take first place for the valley.

This past weekend was the Under 14’s tournament, and the Houston team played four competitive games. In round robin they had two ties and one loss, and then in the finals they lost the game 1-0 in overtime; their Coach Don Kenzle was “super proud” of the team. Mckenzie Chudyk, Jessica Ells, and Camryn Himech are travelling to Vancouver with their BVSS U14 Girls soccer team to compete in the provincials July 4 to 7.

For the Under 18 tournament the Houston team played awesome, even though they were missing their regular goalies! Overall, with amazing team spirit, they had a great year, andhadalotoffun too. Evan Kenzle will be travelling with the Boys BV Rapids team to go to Provincials in Prince George, and Jamie Beck is travelling with the Girls BV Rapids team to Provincials in Vancouver, both are on July 4th to 7th.

A big thank-you to all the volunteers that put in so much time and effort to make the season happen. It is because of them that we have such great teams and a memorable season for all the kids.
