Sports are for everyone!

Contributed by Kathy Flaxman
When some 7000 athletes from the Americas and the Caribbean display their skills and prowess in July and August during the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, fans will be watching in awe and wonder.  The games, at venues from Welland to Oshawa, will be an astounding display of talent and dedication.
No less thrilling are the contests waged in parks, gyms, fields and schoolyards in every local neighbourhood.  “It’s really exciting and fun for kids to take part in organized sports,” Joe Rozman of Weenen General Contracting Limited says.  “That’s why we sponsor a team in the Cabbagetown Youth Centre’s Evening Summer Soccer League.” The teams, a diverse co-ed cohort, 4 to 14 years old, play every Tuesday starting in July and they give it their all!
The Weenen sponsored team, comprised of 12 to 14 year olds, proud in their team picture, displays the attitude of a force to be reckoned with. “Soccer’s a sport that’s popular world-wide so it has universal appeal,” Joe notes. “We’re happy to do our part to help our local children participate.”
When the Pan Am and Parapan Am games take place, lots of us will be glued to our TV sets.  Meanwhile for the young Cabbagetown soccer players, it’ll be game on.  “We’re so very appreciative of the donations that companies like Weenen General Contracting Limited make,” June Charles, Program Co-ordinator of the Cabbagetown Youth Center stresses. “The funds really do help.”
