Soo Soccer Teams Advance to Ontario Indoor Cup

Sault Ste. Marie soccer played host to two Sudbury clubs at the Northern Community Centre on Sunday afternoon.

The Soo City United U16 Girls side was up first in the winner take all game. Lauren Moran opened the scoring for the Soo with a perfectly placed shot beating the Greater Sudbury SC Impact keeper.

It stayed that way until the second half when the Sudbury side was awarded a penalty kick. Kaylee Vaillancourt buried the shot making it 1-1.

Lila Jarrett would play the role of hero scoring late in the second half to give United the 2-1 win and more importantly a berth in the tournament.

“We are proud of our girls. The game was very tight and we fought hard. Our goal was to make the tournament at the end of the month and we achieved it” said coach Joe Valente.

In the U16 Boys game, Gabriel Beaton scored in the second minute for the home side also vs the Impact.

The game was chippy at times with a few yellow cards being shown. The game remained 1-0 until the second half when Elijah Beaton, Gabriel’s brother, added a second goal to put the game out of reach. Ryder Strachan posted the clean sheet in the victory.

“These games are very quick and back and forth. Ryder played very well today and made some key saves for us when we needed them” said Marcel Giordano, coach of the club.

Both sides will now represent Group D on January 28 & 29 at The Soccer Centre in Vaughan.

The Indoor Cup began in 1987 and consists of 6v6 action with 20 minute halves.

Canada Soccer has announced December 2022 updates to 150 clubs as part of its Club Licensing Program. The program is designed to guide member organizations throughout the country toward best principles for organizational development both on and off the field. The Quality Service Providers (QSP) is the entry-level category in Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program.

Congratulations to these 30 Ontario Clubs on Canada Soccer’s Quality Service Providers list including Sault Youth Soccer Club.

In order to qualify as a QSP, member organizations must provide a developmentally appropriate, safe, enjoyable, accessible, inclusive and welcoming playing environment for their participants, which differentiates it from non-member soccer and unorganized play. QSPs must also be in good standing with their governing organization(s) and meet the expectations of membership.

“We are pleased to announce that these clubs have committed to the standards of the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licensing Program and have been able to accomplish the requirements of the categories that they have achieved in spite of the challenges of a global pandemic,” said Jason deVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “The Club Licensing Program exists to raise the level of soccer in this country and ensure a safe, welcoming, and developmentally-appropriate soccer environment for all participants in support of the Canada Soccer Safe Sport Roster.”

Of note, the Quality Soccer Provider designation will become a requirement of membership starting in 2023 to ensure that all member organization clubs meet the standards required to fulfill the requirements of Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster which was unanimously adopted at the 2019 Canada Soccer Annual Meeting of the Members.
