In many events it's very easy to forget the people behind the scenes who really are the ones who enable tournaments to proceed. With this in mind, SSA would like to thank these people for their participation in our tournaments over the years.
More often than not, the coaches give up their valuable time for the teams, sacrificing precious time at home with their families.
Parents are a vital asset to the performance of the respective player. Kids strive to show their parents' their talents on the field for personal approval, praise and sometimes extra treats.
Thanks Mums and Dads...... we really need you there.
Yes, the kids themselves are on the field in all weather conditions; sometimes injuring themselves in the process. We really appreciate the way you put yourselves out there, cutting and scraping yourselves to help your team's triumph.
If looks could kill !!!!
WOW ! ! !
I personally love to see these boys in action; diving and twisting to save the ball. More often than not these boys feel the burden in the face of defeat more intensely than the other players and are quite often the ones who need consoling at the end.
These are the kids who we owe our biggest thanks to; as volunteer IB students earning their valuable CAS points, they come on the field with little knowledge of the game, collect match information and reports, they stand in the heat and rain for the duration of the day and really help us to gather all necessary information.
We really appreciate you kids ! !
Thank you all so much for a wonderful tournament;
we couldn't do it without you.
See you all again next June for our 10th tournament, which will in fact be our very first international tournament before we head off to Beijing for The Great Wall Cup.
