My son has played indoor soccer at the BMO soccer dome on Rectory St. all winter. The season is almost over for the year.
It’s a beautiful facility. Thanks to Albert Choy, Fred Benenati and Tom Partalas, who coordinated efforts to have this facility built. Albert and Tom also referee the kids’ games.
While watching the children play, it’s easy to see why soccer is called the Beautiful Game or Joga Bonito.
There is one little girl on my son’s team who smiles throughout the whole game. She loves playing that much.
She isn’t the best player on the team, but every time the ball comes toward her, her smile gets bigger.
Even if she runs to it and misses it, this girl still smiles.
She’s an inspiration, really. I wish everyone would play the game with such heart and joy as she does.
It’s for kids like her that the volunteers work so tirelessly.
Have you been to the new dome? You should really check it out. It has a walking track around it as well so people can work out. London is lucky to have it.
