BAS’ Xavier Bhoys vs. RMYC United FC

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Brampton Adult SoccerSummer 2013 at the Roy McMurtry Youth Centre (RMYC), a maximum security custody and detention facility for young male youth who have come into conflict with the law, saw the creation of a soccer club, later given the name of RMYC United FC. The club was created in an effort to effect positive change and provide youth with an opportunity to attain self-confidence and leadership skills.

RMYC United FCYouth practiced every Saturday morning and in mid August, once they had an opportunity to create a foundation of camaraderie with each other and develop/enhance upon their skills, RMYC extended invitations to community teams to attend and play against the Club.

The Xavier Bhoys responded to this request and attended the centre on October 5th, 2013 for a game. RMYC United FC pulled out a win, stirring the Xavier Bhoys to request a re-match. On, October 19th, the team returned to the centre with a couple of younger “ringers”. The team tried valiantly in the nail biting game, however the FC were able to defend their title with another win.

The Xavier Bhoys found the experience of playing against youth at RMYC exceptionally positive, with some members commenting on the great skills many of the youth displayed.

The Xavier Bhoys look forward to the 2014 soccer season and the possibility of returning to the centre to again play against their boys.

Bouncing Back from the Psychological Effects of a Serious Injury

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Bouncing Back From A Serious Injury

If you’re a serious soccer player and your whole life revolves around when you can next get out on the pitch to kick a ball about, the worst thing imaginable would be a long term injury, right? Apart from the obvious pain and suffering that you would endure with the physical injury itself and the rehabilitation process, one of the most testing things for an athlete to overcome are the mental effects of this injury.

Emotional Devastation

Imagine (it won’t be hard) that you are a soccer fanatic. You eat, breath, and sleep soccer, and it’s been a major part of your life since before you can remember. When you were in school your soccer skills set you apart from the crowd and gave you some sort of status and sense of achievement. You played your hardest week in, week out, and began to move up through the levels. Maybe you won a college scholarship and you had dreams of going pro in the future. Soccer makes you feel good, confident, happy, and driven, and it’s all you want to do.

Then one day you’re involved in a crunch tackle during the cup semi final and you end up with a broken leg. Worst thing imaginable! All of a sudden your world has been flipped upside down and you are barely even able to hobble around on crutches, never mind play in the cup final next month. The emotional effect that this can have on a player is incredible, and if it is not dealt with properly it can have lasting effects on performance levels, long after the player has recovered physically.

The New Peel Outdoor Smoking By-law

No Smoking Near Soccer Fields In PeelJuly 25, 2013

Re: Peel Outdoor Smoking By-law

To: Sports Associations

As of September 2, 2013, the Peel Outdoor Smoking By-law makes it against the law for anyone to smoke within nine meters (30 feet) of:

  • perimeter of municipal playground areas (including any outdoor area that is designed for the enjoyment or exercise of children and youth)
  • perimeter of municipal sports/activity areas (including any area that is for sports and activities, as well as spectator seating areas and player warm up areas)
  • entrances and exits of municipal buildings (including municipal offices, transit facilities, libraries, recreation centres, concessions stands, fire halls, police stations, golf course club houses, and Peel Housing Corporation multi-unit dwellings with common entrances)

The goal of the Peel Outdoor Smoking By-law is to reduce the public’s exposure to harmful second-hand smoke and create a healthy environment for everyone involved in sports and play, whether they are in the game or in the stands.

Regional tobacco enforcement officers and municipal by-law officers can issue warnings, tickets and fines starting at $250 if the law is broken.

We encourage you to include no-smoking policies in your codes of conduct and share this by-law with your coaches, officials, players, parents and spectators.

For more information, call Peel Public Health at 905-799-7700 and ask to speak with a health inspector (Caledon residents may call toll free at 905-584-2216) or visit SmokeFreePeelRegion.ca. For information about quitting smoking, contact Smokers’ Helpline at 1-877-513-5333 or visit SmokersHelpline.ca.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Mowat
Medical Office of Health, Region of Peel
