Soccer Camp Fundraiser for Free Footie Program

tim-adamsHi there,

My name is Tim Adams I volunteer to run a program called Free Footie.

It’s a totally free soccer league for kids in need in Edmonton. We support 1300 of them.

Here’s a CBC News story about our league.

I’m contacting you because you expressed interest in our previous camp.

Well, we’re giving it another go!

This July we’re running an awesome soccer camp for kids aged 8-12 as a fundraiser for the Free Footie program. 

The camp serves a dual purpose – a great camp to send your own kids to improve their soccer skills, and the proceeds will go to enable kids who are less fortunate to play soccer during the school year.

Our coaching roster includes Olympic medalist & Team Canada goalie keeper, Karina LeBlanc!


When the weather is good the camp will be outside at Crestwood School and when the weather is poor we will flip indoors and use the Crestwood Curling Club that’s across the street. That means we never have to cancel – we are weatherproof!
In addition, if you have your own soccer team, community league, group, etc. that you can send a group of kids from, we want to give you a bonus for doing so – so for every 10 kids that signup from your community, team, club, association we’ll give $450 to your group. Yes, that’s every 10 kids, so 20 = $900, etc. More info on our website.

I’ve attached a couple “postcards” that should work to be shared on Facebook.

If the camp doesn’t interest you, but you’d still like to support Free Footie – you can always make a donation here: http://freefootie.ca/donate/

Thank you for your time,

“Our Family Helping Yours, One Move At A Time”


Free Event For Youth

Celebrate World Orienteering Day with the Edmonton Overlanders Orienteering Club!

We are offering a free ‘Try-It’ event for youth participants – parents can share maps with their child(ern) to make it a family inclusive event.

What is orienteering? ORIENTEERING involves using a special detailed map to choose and follow the best route from one control (checkpoint) to the next. ‘Best’ route depends on YOU; it could be the shortest, or flattest, or smoothest or driest, or least prickly or the most certain to find the control easily. It all depends on skill level and physical ability and personal preference. This is a great sport for anyone that enjoys spending time outside!

Drop-in Registration is open from 6:30pm – 7:30pm with course closing at 9:00pm. Drop-in Registration is near the Kinsmen Park Tennis Courts – look for the orange & white directional signs & the EOOC club banner.

** Please note that in order for participants under 18 years of age to participate, we require a parent/guardian to sign a waiver. If your children are old enough to participate on their own, please stay long enough to ensure that the correct paperwork has been completed.

Free Footie soccer program a breakaway success

GOALLLLL! Free Footie soccer scores with inner-city kids

See video below

tim-adamsTim Adams’ start up league grows from four to 76 teams in six years.

Emmanuel Bisirat’s dream is to play soccer. It always has been.

“It’s not kicking a ball and trying to score; it’s having fun with your friends and living the game,” says the 12-year-old who came to Canada from Ethiopia 10 years ago.

Free Footie night is his favorite night of the week, a chance to play organised soccer, something his family could not afford otherwise.

Free Footie was founded six years ago by CBC Edmonton’s Tim Adams. Coaching soccer in the years before, he noticed there were some kids in the city who couldn’t afford to play.

“The kids here really appreciate it since they get to play with their friends for free with no registering,” he said. “It’s pretty much you ask to join and you’re in.”

Will there be refreshments?
You bet. There will be a variety of healthy snacks.
Do I HAVE to call to RSVP after registering via email?
YES. We all have busy inboxes so it helps us to remind people to show up and also to purchase the right amount of food and drink. We run the seminars even if only a few people can make it, but this way we can limit waste and out of respect to other attendees, prevent last minute re-scheduling.
After you register on Eventbrite, please call Jordan at 780-906-3084 to confirm your attendance, party size and any dietary requirements. If we don’t hear from you, we will email you to try and set up a chat. The day before the seminar, Stacy Bell-Powell will call to remind you about the Seminar and see if there’s anyone else you’d like to invite last minute. The more the merrier!
What topics will be covered?
We will cover a lot of ground, but some of the key areas are:
Mortgage Pre-Approval vs. Pre-Qualification
Client vs. Customer Status
Real Property Reports and why they are crucial to you
De-mystifying all the required Paperwork
The Benefits of having expert Buyer’s Agents work for you
Do I have to sign anything at the event?
Absolutely not! This is strictly an informational session. We will be handing out a feedback form so that we can stay in touch if you so choose, and to improve our future Seminars.
How many guests can I bring?
Three, but due to limited seating capacity in our board room, each guest must be registered with a ticket. If you know other people who want to come, send them this page so they can register as well.
How formal is this?
Not very. Although there is a lot of material and forms to cover in two hours, we like to keep it casual and conversational.
What about potential Sellers?
RSVP to attend our next Sellers Seminar on May 3rd here:
I can’t attend this date. Will there be another event?
Definitely! We run these events regularly… Let us know if any of these dates do not work, and we’ll let you know when we’ve booked future Seminars.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is plenty of visitor parking at our office. PLEASE PARK on the EAST side of the building in the main parking lot and enter through the Staff entrance there. If the door is locked, please ring the bell, or call/text Jordan @ 780-906-3084
