A special congratulations from Vancouver Whitecaps FC to both Burnaby Girls Sparks U-11 team and Ladner Girls Development Team Storm U-10 squad for being the seventh and eighth teams to be named BMO Team of the Week. Both teams received the distinction after being selected by the BMO Team of the Week judging panel as youth soccer teams who demonstrate team pride, team spirit, community commitment, and passion for the game.

Ladner Storm

"Rain or shine, we play, and it's an honour to know that our dedication has been recognized," said Robb Semler, Head Coach, Ladner Girls Development Team Storm U-10. "In addition, the opportunity to win a prize for upgrades to our field is fantastic not only for this team, but also for the community. Our girls work so hard to excel at a sport they love, and at the same time, share their love of soccer by making the effort to mentor younger players; I couldn't ask for a better group of girls to coach."

Burnaby Sparks

"The Sparks have demonstrated real talent, but are always looking to improve," said David Oliver, Head Coach, Burnaby Girls Sparks U-11. "Their creativity, energy, and sheer joy for both soccer and non-soccer-related activities are what make it so easy and such a privilege to coach this team."
