The Seaway Valley Soccer Club recently announced that Binh Ha was voted in as the new Director of the Blazers. Ha is an experienced soccer player, head team coach, and board member. He is replacing Marc Primeau, who held the position of Blazers Director for ten years and will continue his roll of head referee with the club.
“I am honoured and excited to be taking over the Director of Blazers role and hope that my team and I can continue to grow and deliver a quality program for the youth in our community. I would like to thank our previous Director, Marc Primeau on his transformative and impactful tenor these last ten years and wish him all the best,” said Binh Ha.
Ha shared that in 2022, one big milestone was returning to normal soccer activities for all programs after COVID-19 temporarily shut things down. Last year saw over 900 youth soccer players registered and more than 100 volunteers come together to make it all happen.
“This included competitive play for our Blazers, Coyotes and recreational House League programs. We were also able to run skills development in the fall,” Ha explained.
As for 2023, later this month the SVSC will offer Futsal to competitive Blazers players (a type of indoor soccer played on a smaller court with fewer players) along with holding tryouts for the Coyotes program. In the spring, the club will run more skills development and hopes to invite teams from around the region to a weekend festival of soccer games.
