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.

February Winner

Meet the latest Soccer Parent of the Month: Bev Shewfelt, Grande Prairie, AB

Thanks to Trevor Whitby, coach of the U14 Boys Grande Prairie United Team, and Christine Reid, Grande Prairie Minor Soccer Board member, for submitting Bev’s nomination:

“Bev is the parent of two boys playing in our club in U12 and U14. Bev is always the first to lend a hand when needed. She’s been involved in our club in numerous ways such as team manager, committee member and board member. She’s always behind the scenes helping out wherever needed with a positive attitude.” – Christine Reid

“Bev has been the manager for my boys U14 Grande Prairie United Club team (in which her son plays). Bev is the ultimate manager. She always has a positive impact on everyone she comes into contact with (i.e. the coaching staff, the players, and most importantly, the parent group). She is the consummate, “yes” person, always first to help or direct any task or duty the team may need from her. As well, she is always coming up with new ideas of how to enhance the players’ experience during the soccer season. As a coach, Bev makes my life so

much easier because she looks after all of the details and because of that I can completely focus on my main duty of developing soccer players. Bev’s passion for soccer is quite evident.” – Trevor Whitby

Congratulations on behalf of COBS Bread and Alberta Soccer!

Bev’s favourite COBS bread recipe is the Green Goddess Sandwich
