Bonivital is pleased to announce that Tonya Derkson will be joining the club as Assistant Technical Director. A National B License coach and a certified LTPD Master Learning Facilitator with the Canadian Soccer Association, Tonya brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will benefit the club's technical programming, from coach development and team training to our academies.
Tonya comes to Bonivital from the MSA, where she managed the provincial organization's technical programs. In addition to this work, Tonya has been a program consultant to the St. Charles Soccer Association. At the same time, she has been very active as a coach, working as a staff coach at the National Development Centre, as an assistant coach for the U of M Bisons women's soccer team, and as head coach for the Western Canada Summer Games team.
Tonya is no stranger to Bonivital, having worked as an Academy staff coach and as coach of a U13 Premier team in 2012 and 2013. She is excited to be returning as Assistant Technical Director. “I am looking forward to being able to work directly with players and coaches on the pitch. For me it is a privilege to work with young athletes to help them succeed in reaching their goals.“
Please extend a warm welcome to Tonya when you see her on the pitch in the coming months.
Coach Raff Cantafio and the Bonivital U18 boys team overcame the frustration of a late tying goal to win the 2014 MSA Championship in penalties. For almost all of the players on the squad this will be return engagement at Nationals, as most competed at the 2013 tournament as members of either the U16 or U18 Bonivital teams - a rare achievement.
Congratulations and best wishes to boys for continued success at Nationals.
The Bonivital U11 Girls won the East St Paul Prairie Classic championship in their age division. The team went undefeated, with 15 goals for and only 1 against over 7 games. Congratulations to coach Dom Paquette and his girls!
Bonivital Soccer Club is proud to announce that our very own Leo Reka is going to play with the U15 Royal Sporting Club Anderlecht Youth Academy (First Division Belgium Jupiler League) for the 2014/15 season. Leo has been with Bonivital for the last four years and is also part of the Manitoba Provincial Program. We wish him and his family all the best!
Bonivital congratulates Coach James Chomini and his U12 Girls team who won the Tri City Storm championship in their pool during the past weekend. After an initial 3-2 loss, the team swept the next two games decisively and won the championship match played with near gale force winds.
