Bonivital goalkeeper Jazmiera Ditter has left for Vancouver BC to continue to pursue her dreams in soccer. While living with family she will be attending high school in Coquitlam and training at both Fortius and Simon Fraser University. Jazi will be playing for the Mountain United FC in the BC SPL high performance league, and will also be training with the BC High Performance Academy program. She is excited to take this next step and play at this high level of competition to take her game to the next level and help her prepare for college soccer.
This past summer Jazi had been short listed for the CSA U15 Women's CONCACAF team, and although she did not make the travel roster, she hopes to eventually make her way on to this team. Jazi is also working hard to earn a spot in the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Girls Elite REX Program when the time is right.
The Ditter family would like to thank the Bonivital Soccer Club for all that they have done for her over the past 6 years. Thanks to all of the coaches who have worked with Jazi and especially to BVSC Technical Staff Malcolm Mitchell and Tonya Derkson for their continued support. We would also like to thank Rob and Mick Gale for having identified Jazi at a young age and giving her the opportunity to participate in the NDC programs in grades 7 and 8. Thanks also to Jim Zinko and Trevor Kidd for their involvement with Jazi and the Manitoba Blizzard, and to the MSA/CSA/REX staff for Jazi’s continued development towards Gold Level Standards this past year.
Bonvital Soccer Club would like to congratulate Josh Marius on being the first BV player to be invited into the Whitecaps full time residency program. Josh has been a Bonivital player for approximately five years and has attended club academies and high performance training throughout this time. Technical director Malcolm Mitchell commented: "We are delighted for Josh and his family. This opportunity is the next step in his soccer career towards his ultimate goal of being a professional soccer player. We will be following his progress in Vancouver and wish him every success in his endeavours.
The BVSC U12 Girls came together at the beginning of the 2016 outdoor season and the coaches Tony Fonseca and Kevin Dick quickly got to work, getting the girls working as a team. This was highlighted by a Gold Medal win at the Tri-City tournament in Fargo, N.D. against teams with many strong and some older US girls' teams. The team finished the tournament 4-1-0, with the Gold Medal game being a strong 3-0 finish. This tournament was a confidence booster for all the girls, who this month went on to win gold in the East St. Paul tournament with a 2-0 final game score. It has been a great year of development for this group of girls with the spirited, engaging and fun coaching of Tony and Kevin.
