In the September 19th, 2016 edition of the Telegraph Journal our very own Bruce Savoie, Men's Soccer, was featured!

As goal keeper for our men's soccer team Bruce met up with Scott Briggs (Telegraph Journal) to tell his story about his coaching experience in Kugluktuk, Nunavut. With keepsakes in tow for the interview Bruce told his story of travelling for the love of soccer. To Bruce it is more than just coaching soccer, it is about providing opportunity and sharing his knowledge of the sport he has played and loved for years. In the isolated community of Kugluktuk, the kids look forward to playing soccer and gaining new perspectives, there is even a rise in attendance when Bruce arrives.

Although it is quite a distance for Bruce to travel, he looks forward to returning to Kugluktuk to provide guidance for the children who are eager to play. The community members as well as Bruce gain nothing but positive experiences from his visits!

He would love to see his team mates here at UNBSJ get to experience this great soccer program!

Way to go Bruce!!
