Steve Seale

Team: U10 Boys Team 6 - Tigers


Nominated by: Kristyn LeBlanc            

Please explain why you feel this coach should be awarded the Coach of the Week:

Steve has been really involved with the team and shows not only coaching skills but passion for the game. He is extremely vocal with the boys to ensure they are learning how to play to the best of their abilities. He’s not afraid to push them and motivate them. His best attribute is his genuine caring nature when a player is frustrated, tired or has been injured. He supports the boys the right way......professional and personal. Thanks Steve!!!!


Chris Laing

Team: U7 Boys Team 3




Nominated by: Keri Bright and Karli MacLeod    

Please explain why you feel this coach should be awarded the Coach of the Week:

Chris has already proven to be very patient and encouraging with all the kids. My son is very shy and having a bit of trouble getting involved in practices and Chris has gone over and above to make sure my son is included and inspired. We are very pleased with his leadership! Even with a broken arm/hand, he is out there coaching our boys. He also hasn't had much support with finding a permanent assistant coach, so he flying fairly solo on this one. Thanks Chris!!


Ted Naylor

Team: U10 Girls Phoenix X

Nominated by: Patrick Dunsmore              

Please explain why you feel this coach should be awarded the Coach of the Week:

Coach Naylor goes far beyond his responsibilities of a coach when it comes to his U10 Girls Phoenix team. Ted puts in a lot of extra time for his girls off and on the field to try and maximize their growth and potential. Ted exhibits positive, high energy during training sessions to keep the girls engaged, and pays great attention to detail for his expectations while executing each exercise. Whether it is giving the girls extra ball control ‘homework’ assignments to help them gain more confidence for practices and games, or following up with parents to ensure his coaching approach is what’s working best for their daughter. Ted has each girl’s best interest in mind and does a great job keeping communication lines open with the parents with information on LTPD and his team and coaching development strategies.


Jose Ignacio Marin

Team: U10 Boys Team 4

Nominated by: Jill Steiner      

Please explain why you feel this coach should be awarded the Coach of the Week:

I have heard several parents mention in the sidelines how they are excited about the season this year because the coaches Jose and Jose are so enthusiastic and willing to actually teach the boys. I am also impressed with the way they actually run a proper practice, they have the boys full attention and demonstrate the skills they need to work on. There is real learning. The boys all have fun and are very positive and are showing great sportsmanship. There is a real sense of camaraderie. He also communicates Cleary with parents with reminder emails! There just seems to be a real buzz and excitement from both the boys and parents in this team, which I believe is fostered from the coaches!!

Please explain why you feel this coach should be awarded the Coach of the Week:

Great coaching skills, great with the kids, very patient, very hands-on, always is right there with the kids, explains all the drills well, all the kids seem to like him and follow his lead. He is great with the kids and super patient. He explains the drills very well and the kids follow his lead. He makes the training fun for the kids and fun to watch for the parents. Colin has quickly developed great rapport with all of the kids and parents. He makes all of the kids feel successful and is very positive at each practice and game. He encourages a strong team spirit while teaching important physical skills. He has made my son feel successful even when he was extremely frustrated while learning these new skills. I love that he encourages them to play as a team and not worry about the score. I look forward to the rest of the season with Colin guiding the team!
