Yorkton United FC celebrates year

Yorkton United FC, the city’s soccer program, gathered on Mar. 9 for their sixth annual banquet, to celebrate their accomplishments and the continued growth of the sport in the city.
Club President Mike Chapman said that their measure of success is by participation.

“We want to make affordable, quality soccer programming available for everyone.”

In doing that, however, the program does make competitive teams, with their most recent accomplishment being a collection of gold and silver medals from the recent provincial tournament in Saskatoon.

“For a program that doesn’t have the luxury to pick and choose from hundreds of players and place them where it’s best for them, we do really, really well and we’re really excited about that.”

Jeanne Fetsch was the speaker at the event, talking about the impact soccer has made on her life and how being in her peak physical fitness saved her life.

The club also gave out player awards. The award winners were as follows:
