Our soccer team qualified to play in the Provincial Games in Peel Region. Soccer was played in Mississauga. The games were organized by Peel Regional Police. They did a great job.
Our team stayed in residences at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus. First, there were the Opening Ceremonies at the Powerade Centre in Brampton. They are always great. We paraded in to the Ceremonies with our district, South West.
In the games, we played against teams from around the province. The Special Olympics motto is “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” I think our team was brave in the attempt. Yes, that means we didn’t finish in the medals but that’s okay. You cannot always win something. Sometimes, no matter how hard you play, the other teams play harder or better. And it’s still a really fun time.
At the Provincial Games, they had a new division for Women’s Soccer. I think this looks great and maybe sometime I will play on a women’s team.
