Vaughan Soccer Club celebrates Santafest, the holidays, and a time of giving...

vaughan santafest parade 2018 1ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25, VSC TOOK PART IN THE ANNUAL SANTAFEST PARADE HELD IN MAPLE. BIG THANKS TO THE VAUGHAN AZZURRI GIRLS AND BOYS SQUADS WHO PARTICIPATED!

The parade started with a large crowd that welcomed us onto the streets of Maple. We were all taken away by their enthusiasm and excitement.

Big thanks to the Board of Directors, coaches, managers, parent volunteers and players in attendance. We appreciate these moments together, building life-long habits, and relationships, having fun off the field celebrating our community event!!!

‘We truly had a wonderful experience. The energy from the crowds of Maple transferred onto the teams, as they handed out soccer bags and candy-canes to the crowd. The smiles and cheers the team received from the crowd was overwhelming and contagious, encouraging the team to high five the crowd all the way to end!' said Sandy Polombo [VSC Registrar in attendance].

There are many people we would like to thank for all their hard work in making this day happen:
Thank you to the Vaughan Soccer Club, especially Sandra Colica, Tony Depalma and Joe Cordi for organizing the event. Much appreciation to John Fidalgo, Sandy Polombo, Frank Cerninara, Joe Mario, Tony Posca, Gary and more!!! All who took the time to participate, walk with the teams and for their commitment to our youth - on and off the field! Thank you to all for their participation, their hard work, and for making this day a fun time for all.

We would like to thank SantaFest for providing us this opportunity to gather together. Their hard work and dedication to Maple is much appreciated.

Letter of appreciation to Vaughan Soccer Club:

Dear Vaughan Soccer Club,
I have recently returned from another amazing mission trip to Zambia. Faith's Orphan Fund is the organization I volunteer with each year and I am very grateful for the generous uniform donations that VSC has graciously provided. I can't explain the excitement on the children's faces when they see me starting to pull out the colourful jerseys and the shorts. Even the socks are so greatly appreciated. You see, for them, this jersey may be the only new clothing they receive all year and the jerseys last and last. They wash well, don't fade, and dry fast so even when they get caught in the rain, (rainy season is 6 months of the year) they know their shirts will be dry in no time. Also the drawstring bags were a huge success, everyone wanted one! I am including several photos of the older students who were thrilled with their gifts and some photos of the younger children in the village.

A little means a lot!

Please notice the excitement on their faces and some are apprehensive, not smiling because I am the first white person they had seen and were a little unsure of what to make of me. LOL! You will notice that in the photos of the boys before (dressed in usual wear, often they wear no shoes because they have no shoes) and then after with the new clean shorts and jersey, they loved the idea of wearing socks too!!! It was so cute. We had to help them put the socks on since they never had any before. It actually gets down to 5 degrees at night sometimes and their little feet get chilled to the bone. I never thought about Africa as being cold but it happens. Even jackets and hats are worn if they have them. When you see line ups of children, that is them waiting to receive something. They LOVE playing "football" and when the rest of the boxes of clothes arrive, they are going to be absolutely ecstatic. The young man in the red jersey, Elijah, is the lead student at the training center. He was so happy to be wearing a new jersey I think he wore it every day for the whole week!

Thank you very much for making so many young people happy with receiving a gift. It is always nice to see jerseys on students when I first arrive. They come up asking for one more. Usually they are asking for their younger siblings. Often with the younger children, the elders of the village will help to distribute the items as they see the greatest needs be met first. The needs are many and the families are large. Thank you for blessing them with your gently used uniforms and equipment.

In loving service,
Debra DiPaola

Most players and their families are very excited about the opportunity with the TFC Youth Academy. Their state of the art facilities will support them in further enhancing their potential and their continued growth in soccer. VSC has one of the highest amount of recruited players at TFC if not the highest, compared to any other not-for-profit community clubs.

Among the players listed, we also had at least another 8 players that participated in the TFC Youth Academy trials not included in the list above. Every year, this cycle repeats itself, another example of VSC's commitment to player development and our high performance development program!

Vaughan soccer club has a reputation of regularly producing division 1 caliber players, under the guidance of Carmine Isacco [VSC's Technical Director]. Supported by a sound technical team, the commitment to player development truly shines North of Toronto. Adapting to the OSA's long-term developmental philosophy [LTPD], has had Vaughan Soccer Club placing a strong emphasis in identifying, and grooming, high skilled players from a young age.

We are very happy for all these players and wish them the best in their development as soccer players. Special thanks to the team coaches, technical trainers, and all the volunteers who have contributed to our players successes.

All the best from all of here at Vaughan Soccer!
