I'm proud to be a part of an amazing association. I've been involved with Richmond Minor Football for 5 years as a parent, coach, board member, and now in my first year as President. I've been blessed to be involved with such wonderful families and youth all sharing a passion for this great Canadian game. One of our goals as an association is to provide fundamental training. Including safe contact training, movement and agility training, and core strengthening. I believe in teaching youth to be active, accountable, positive, and team oriented. Community football is an amazing opportunity for families and youth to come together. Our volunteer coaches are required to get certified training to ensure they are up to date with how they should be instructing the players. I'm committed to helping provide a fun, fair, and enjoyable experience for all our families. There is always a great deal of work that is involved running an association. Our council works extremely hard to provide a great experience. Without the wonderful people that put their time in throughout the season it would not be possible. I would like to thank all our families for their continued hard work and I am excited to have the 2018 seasons get underway.
