Sports & Family Day

 

Nestle Sponsors Caribbean Stars Sports & Family Day

 

Nestle Canada sponsor this years Caribbean Stars Sports & Family Day. The company was on hand to promote its Milo product and gave out taste test to everyone present.

 

Caribbean Stars Annual Sports & Family Day took place at Birchmount Stadium on Saturday July 7, 2007. This year there was a noticeable increase in the kids to adults ratio, although there was a drop in the attendance compared to previous years

The Family Day was musically challenged by the surprised appearance of panist and steel pan extraordinaire, Earl La Pierre Jr. better known as"Eman".

 

Eman played for the better part of an hour to the delight of the crowd.

The event organizers has given the Family Day a big boost since it began bringing in the inflatable games. This year was no different in that the inflatable games were a hit with the kids.

So much so that the technicians who arrived to collect the games for the rental company all agreed to dismantle the inflatable games one by one, so as not to disappoint the kids who were having lots of fun with them.

 

The "Batman" and "Slide' inflatables were a first for the Family Day event, and although the Nestle inflatable could not withstand the strong wind, that was also a hit for the time it was in service.

The Western Union "Spin the Wheel' tent erected by Jermaine Granville, was an instant hit with both the adults and kids. The participants would get a prize in relation to where the wheel stopped.

 

The Family Day that was filled with surprises as there were a lot of no shows by some of the teams which had committed their participation only days before the event.

 

To compensate Clairlea, Malvern, Brampton and

Toronto Eagles boy's teams displayed their talent for the crowd. 

 

Next to Western Union was the Youths Deserve a Chance to Dream (YDCD) table headed by Marion Magloire, mother of NBA player Jamal Magloire.

 

Marion and her staff, hand out literature about their foundation, and special treats for the kids.  Marion Magloire and the YDCD foundation was the sole donator and presenter of the medals of the track races.

T&T Trendsetters at Family Day

Trinidad and Tobago Trendsetters Hawks boys Under 18 soccer team end their visit to Toronto last Tuesday after creating quite an impact. The team closed off their 3 week visit after participating in the Caribbean Stars Sports and Family Day last weekend at Lamoreaux Soccer Centre in Scarborough.

The Family Day was a welcome change of paste for the Trendsetters team after competing in the 40th Annual Robbie Tournament and the Toronto Cup tournament on consecutive weekends. The team closed off their Toronto stay in fine style when they defeated North Scarborough S.C. 4-1 in their last game of the family day schedule and clinched the “fair play award”. Trendsetters lost to Brampton East 1-0 in their first game while North Scarborough  defeated Brampton East 2-1 in their second game.

 

This year the Family Day was used as a tribute to the Trinidad and Tobago Soca Warriors in recognition of the football team accomplishment as the smallest country to qualify at a World Cup as well as to highlight the presence of the visiting Trendsetters team.

The visitors popularity soared as word of their impressive play circulated. As a result the team attracted large crowds. The team advanced to the semi final in the two tournaments they participated. From Group C in the Robbie and Group B in the Toronto Cup. As a result of the team performance a few of their players have been scouted and are making them selves available for potential scholarship offers to the United States.  

The Trinidad and Tobago Consulate office in Toronto has continued their support of the team and has committed to making the Trendsetters team return visit possible.

Caribbean Stars Family Day Archives

 

Photo Finish in the boys under 14 race on the Saturday was a good indication of the type of excitement and entertainment experienced at Birchmount Stadium at the Caribbean Stars Sports and Family Day weekend. The Family Day was a great success with basketball hoops available for shoot around, entertaining soccer games, that showcased promising young talent, Music, Caribbean Food, Social, and most important an atmosphere reminiscent of a well spent vacation. The highlight of the program was the boys U-13 game between North Scarborough Harlem and N.S Stings which has been called “the game"

 

The game had all the characteristics of a blowout after Harlem riddled Stings with 3 unanswered goals in 5 minutes to take a commanding 3-1 lead at the half. In the second half the Sting returned the favor and scored 5 unanswered goals of their own. This competitive display got the crowd enthusiastic crowd very excited. Stings eventually won the game 5-4 but Harlem made it interesting after fighting back to score minutes before the end.

The final whistle came with Harlem having the momentum and in search of the equalizing goal. The crowd gave the teams a standing ovation at the end of the game to show their appreciation.

 

 The track races as previously mentioned were very competitive with the under 14 race for boys resulting in a photo finish. The Boys under 12 race (below) was also very competitive and by the body language you could appreciate the intensity and the effort.

 

 A first for the Family Day was a scheduled no gender restrictions to compete in the Family Day under 15 Scarborough United Team to play a Boy's North Scarborough under 14 team. The girls played well and understandably enjoyed the full support of the crowd. However, the boys eventually won the game 4-0.

 

The Men’s Soccer part of the Family Day program progressed into an action filled men’s game between Soca and NSSC Posse. Soca eventually scored the winning goal three minutes before the final whistle in a game that went back and forth. Soca Club has been a regular participant at the Family and is a member of the Toronto Services Soccer League. They have revamped their soccer program for 2005 with the noticeable increase of talented young players. North Scarborough is a member of the Ontario Soccer League (MJ Division) and is an affiliate of Caribbean Stars Soccer Club for the 2005 season. 

 

The Adidas Soccer Tent installed by John Williams was a big hit with the kids. Most kids participated while their friends supported as they competed for prizes at numerous shooting contests. The wait in the long line proved to be worth the wait by the smiles on the kids faces with their prizes.

 

 

 Family Day Saturday closed out with a veteran Over-35 game between Oil Brigade from Toronto and Caribec from Montreal/Quebec. This is the second year for Caribec at the family day and they have committed to the Caribbean Stars Family Day for 2006. However, Caribec has requested that they get stiffer competition from Toronto for the next year. From all indications they will be very hard to beat. They are a very talented veteran team that had little opposition in winning their game by a lopsided 5-1 margin. Last year they played to a 2-2 tie with Ice Picks from New Yor. Icepicks cancelled this year due to prior commitment to the CONCACAF Gold Cup and a Miami Veteran organization

 

Family Day Sunday opened with an important Ontario Cup game between G.S United and Bramlea Celtic.

G.S was very aggressive at the start of the game  and controlled the run of play with their ball possession. They had a commanding 2-0 lead until 3 minutes to halftime when a GS United defender good cute and chest trap a cross ball in his penalty area. Needless to say he lost the ball to a Celtic forward and the play resulted in a goal for Bramlea Celtic. This made the 2-1 game very interesting  to the half. The second half began as if the teams changed uniforms. Celtic was now the aggressor and had the momentum and the control of play but missed several scoring opportunities. GS United defense finally adjusted to Celtics attack up their left side and the game balanced off into a see-saw battle with both teams playing outstanding defense. The game ended with an all out do or die attack from Celtic, throwing everyone in attack in an effort to avoid elimination. But time was not on their side, and it was too little too late. G.S United won 2-1 in a highly competitive showdown. GS United is a regular participant of Caribbean Stars activities and will be featured by Caribbean Stars at the end of the 2005 season.

 

Two Scarborough united women’s teams were up next on the Family Day program, the Strikers and the All Stars. The game was well played and definitely changed the atmosphere of the Family Day. The level of play was well received with lots of applause, support and encouragement for the players. 

 

The atmosphere changed quickly from a must win of the previous GS United Ontario Cup game, to the compliments of nice pass, and loud cheering. The game was close from the get go and Strikers eventually won the tight contest 2-1. At the end of the game the crowd responded with loud applause in appreciation of the effort and energy by the women teams.

 

The featured game of the Sunday program was between the Caribbean All Stars of the Toronto Caribbean Soccer League (TCSL) and the Toronto Lynx of the United Soccer League (USL) This game displayed soccer at its highest in the community and was very entertaining. It also left everyone pleasantly surprised with the talent of the All Star team. The game was played at a fast pace with some amazing individual skills. Toronto Lynx were forced to match the quickness of the Stars team and did a commendable job. The Caribbean community was hopeful of seeing this type of energy and quickness from the Lynx during the early part of their USL season. They (Lynx) eventually proved to be the superior team and went on to win the game by a 2-1 score. By all indication, good things will happen if the Toronto Lynx play the brand of soccer they displayed at Caribbean Stars Sports and Family Day
