We know that for every dedicated soccer player out there, there is a dedicated soccer parent cheering them on from the sideline. Do you go above and beyond to make sure your child gets the support they deserve while playing soccer? COBS Bread and Alberta Soccer are hosting a Soccer Parent of the Month contest in recognition of parents who positively contribute to their child’s involvement in soccer, which includes eating well as part of a healthy soccer lifestyle.

Enter this contest or nominate someone you know by the 25th of each month and one individual will have a chance win a prize pack containing: COBS Bread prize pack, an Alberta Soccer Tote Bag, a ‘Proud Soccer Parent’ T-Shirt and a mini soccer ball.

September Soccer Parent of the Month

Meet the September Soccer Parent of the Month: Les Barker, Edmonton, AB

Les’s favourite COBS bread recipe is the Chicken Caesar Salad

Les not only coaches his son at the U14 level and coached his daughter in U8, but he has been involved with soccer for over 10 years. He started out with Calgary Minor Soccer coaching his oldest son who is now 20, and then moved to Edmonton where he was a soccer director with EMSA NORTH and now sits on the executive board with EMSA NORTH. He is also the Vice President of the Hairsine Community League.

Les organizes summer soccer camps for all ages every summer and you can find him outside when not coaching, practicing and playing with his children out on the soccer field. His commitment to family and to the community is amazing, the number of hours he puts in monthly by organizing equipment,  running soccer clinics, taking on new coaches and working with them, driving other children on his soccer team to the games when parents can’t make it. He is not only a parent to his own kids but to the many other children that look up to him for guidance. He is always encouraging his children as well as the other children out on the soccer field.

Congratulations on behalf of COBS Bread and Alberta Soccer, Les!
