Now that we’re in full swing, the organization has had a lot happen in the last few weeks. One of our most highly awaited news items happened near the end of last month. As of January 21st, 2016 we are an official charity recognized by the Government of Canada (Charitable #822300596RR0001)! With charitable status, we can now issue official donation receipts for income tax purposes. Please contact us if you believe your past donation(s) can qualify for this!
Over the past several years, we’ve formed strong ties with local community and soccer organizations. Fortunately, some of our players have been able to participate in league soccer through the Calgary Glenmore FC Club with waived membership fees. So, on behalf of our wonderful partnership with Calgary Glenmore FC, we would like to extend our enthusiasm in regards to their collaboration with West Ham United, as in, the premiere English soccer league.
“Cal-glen SC will be hosting a West Ham North American Academy Showcase in the summer of 2016. Players will be trained and evaluated by a coach from The West Ham North American Academy. Players who display potential will be invited to The West Ham North American Academy National Camp.” (Source: Calgary Glenmore FC // February 26, 2016)
Who knows, maybe we’ll even see some of our own players in a national league one day!
