GS Boys U12 (1998) Red Team
The U12 Red team is coached by Pro Academy Staff Coach Elvis Azevedo a Benfica fan who
is committed to teaching the players to play possession based soccer a philosophy of the
Club itself. „Winning is important but not if it compromises the development of the individual
player‟ says Azevedo. We welcome any player who has the support of their parents to long-
term goals in the game and feels they can have an impact to improve the quality of play.
The team played extremely well in the outdoor season but are actively seeking players who
can play up front who can score or in the midfield to create and one centre-back who can
man-mark. Coach Azevedo has worked so well with the development of these player‟s in
mini-soccer that 5 players who could play U11 this past summer played U12. „Having lost a
number of games 1-0, this team could have finished better if we had held onto the players
who were promoted to the U12 team, but again the importance is the individual player and
what is best for them. I agree with the philosophy of the Club 100% and if we can develop 5
players who can move on then we can do it again especially how the boys were
complimented by so many on how they played possession soccer rather than the typical
kick and run.‟

GS Boys BU13 (1997)
The Boys U13 Coach Bobby Randhawa was unanimously chosen as the recipient of the 2009
„Boys Coach of the Year‟ Award for his team‟s outstanding style of soccer on the field built
around his and the Club‟s philosophy of possession based soccer. Bobby played for the
Toronto Lynx in USL „A‟ League and understands the commitment to long player
development. „I have been fortunate to have a professional career and I enjoy the
opportunity to work with young players who have their parents support to understand
winning will come in time but young players need to be able to do the fundamentals
consistently and that is why I Coach here at Glen Shields who has the philosophy and a
proven track record of moving players onto the next level.‟ The team finished 2 nd in the L4P
division as a result of truly committing to the program of player development to possession
soccer at U11 where the team struggled against the kick and run soccer of its opponents.
Today this team is one of the most entertaining teams to watch within the Glen Shields SC
as they can compete with any team in York Region and the GTA. The team has 5 U12
players on the squad with NO individual egos but a commitment to team performance based
on individual technical ability. The team welcomes any player whose parents support the
philosophy of the Club to long-player development.
