SUSC co-hosted one of the top soccer games you will see in Saskatchewan over this past weekend.
The action was intense Saturday at Newsham field between the Huskies Men’s Soccer team and the Saskatoon Revolution Alumni! We had a fantastic turnout of close to 400 people from across the city to take in the action under the lights. The atmosphere was prime for a good old time soccer match on such a beautiful autumn evening. The game had an unrelenting pace, and ended in a 2-2 draw with a last minute goal by the Huskies! Big thanks to these two teams who put on an outstanding performance, and to all those that came out to take in the event!
Saskatoon United Soccer Club - SUSC co-hosted one of the top soccer games you will see in Saskatchewan over this past weekend. The U of S Huskie Athletics Men's Soccer Team and the Saskatoon Revolution Alumni, our Saskatchewan representatives at this years "Canadian Men's National Championship ", squared off in a fantastically anticipated exhibition game. Both teams host a wealth of local and outside province talent, led and coached by some of Saskatchewan's top coaching staffs. This abundance of talent was on display at NO cost for all to see, Saturday night under the lights and we saw a great representation from all of Saskatoon's Soccer Community at the event.
Ever dream of playing soccer internationally?
This is the reality of one of SUSC’s very own players Elias Poitras-Whitecalf who recently played in the Baidu Cup in China, on a composite team of players from Saskatchewan, Alberta and China. Not only did he play in one of China’s largest youth tournaments, which hosted over 1000 teams, but he also came away with a gold medal when his team went undefeated in 9 games. It’s been an outstanding summer for Elias who also found success when the U15 SUSC Reds won outdoor provincials. Proud father Ted Whitecalf, who also helps coach the Reds, was with his son to share in the experience and bring back some great photos.

It’s been an incredible few weeks at the SUSC Summer Youth Soccer Academy at the Elite Proformance Sport Centre! Last night we had a special visit from the Huskies Athletics Men's Soccer team courtesy of Head Coach Bryce Chapman. Kids got a demonstration, some instruction followed by some game play with the Huskies! What a great way to inspire these kids to reach their goals. The SUSC Summer academy is focused on getting our youth’s minds and bodies prepped for the upcoming season. Motivation and inspiration are a key part to this academy along with a game based atmosphere that guarantees learning and fun. Thank you Huskies for the awesome evening. Go out and support the Huskies this season!
SUSC held it's Soccer Day in the Park on Saturday.
Great to see a nice turn out especially in the middle of summer break! Thank you to the coaches and board members for putting on this event. The local Safeway also provided bottled water for the kids, and each kid walked away with a SUSC water bottle. Enjoy the rest of your summer break, and hope to see you at our upcoming camp and academy!
This is a new program to recognize individuals and/or teams.
