Aug 16, 2016 : NDUFC U14G win Cup Championship!
Congratulations to the U14 Girls team in winning the YRSA Cup Championship last Saturday. The team had to win all their Cup matches throughout the season so they could reach the finals against Peterborough, but the hard work paid off in a hard fought 4-1 victory. The girls played an excellent all-round game with skill and determination to get the result, and started as strong as they finished the game, exhibiting their trademark team play to perfection. Two first half goals were equaled by
Jan 2, 2012: The U12G training session had a very special guest in mid December. Candace Chapman, veteran member of Canada's National women's team dropped by to gives the girls some advice on soccer and life skills. She was presented with a NDUFC team jersey, signed by the girls. The event was organized by Team Manager, Denise Jennings.
Candace worked with the girls showing them proper techniques for these basic movements / skills. During our first break, Candace talked to the girls about the National Team's support of a program called, "Because I Am A Girl".
The National Team is supporting this Plan charity by providing funds to purchase birth certificates for girls in third world countries. As Candace explained to the ND team, "There are countries in the world who don't provide birth certificates to girls and as a result, these girls are not viewed as citizens. They have no right to vote for example. A birth certificate costs $25 and many families simply can't afford it." The players from the ND U12 team then presented Candace with a $200 donation to be used to purchase birth certificates for 8 girls.
The training session continued and Candace again worked with the girls, demonstrating some of her skills. During our next break, Candace sat down with the girls and answered questions for 15 min. The girls were quite engaged and wanted to know where she grew up, how she got to be on the National team, what was it like playing for our country, did she miss her family when she travelled, how often does she train, etc.
At the end of the session, she signed autographs for the girls and then drew names and gave out 3 National team jerseys to the lucky recipients.
Our girls came away with a better understanding of the dedication required to be the best you can be at whatever you do. I also think they got a glimpse of how fortunate they are to live in Canada.

Thanks to the over one hundred NDUFC players (and parents) and coaches who proudly wore their gold for our group picture. (click on the image for a larger 1.8 meg version).
NDUFC LOGO HAS BEEN SELECTED: Thanks to all those who submitted logo designs. It's always a tough decision but in the end our new logo is a composite of ideas from a number of those submitted. We feel it represents us through the colours of our foundation clubs, Uxbridge, Scugog and Brock and shows them merging into one new streamlined club for the future.
Here's the logo on a Gold background (our primary jersey colour)
Here's the logo on a White Background (our Alternate Jersey colour).
