Soccer squads compete for pitch renovation prize

The BMO Team of the Week contest is back, acknowledging youth soccer teams (ages seven-12) that display team pride, spirit, community commitment and passion for the game.

Until July 13, Canadian soccer coaches and parents can nominate their favourite youth soccer team by logging on to and entering an essay, photos or video to demonstrate why their team deserves to be the team of the week.

Weekly winners will be announced starting April 18 and receive $500, track suits and a gift to local charity.

Each of the winning teams will become finalists for the grand prize, which includes $125,000 toward a renovation of their soccer pitch.

The Gabriola Wolves were among the 15 finalists for last year’s championship vote.
