Coach of the Week November

Mike and Sara Pidhirniak


Nominated by: Ryan Arbour


Mike and Sara Pidhirniak deserve recognition for exceptional communication with the parents, running well organized, varied and interesting drills for the kids, for consistently showing enthusiasm and dedication to helping the kids improve and have fun. They consistently go the extra mile, even so far as to get the kid's first names screened onto their jerseys. The kids benefit so much from the energy they put out, and I appreciate it!

Christine Baker is an incredible Coach. She has an excellent soccer IQ, and knows exactly how to coach our girls to their level of understanding and skill. She is always cheerful, pleasant and encouraging. She definitely deserves an award for her work and determination to coach our girls.



Coach of the Week November

Mike Callbeck

We have been involved with indoor and outdoor soccer for around 5 years now, and Mike Callbeck is by far the best coach we have had. He knew all the boys names after the first practise, and goes above and beyond for the team and to keep parents informed. Mike definitely deserves recognition for all he is bringing to SPDSA!

Michelle, takes times with all the girls to teach and explain the rules and how the game is played. She’s organized before every game, has the girls on the pitch ready to warm up.
