Cheer Team Canada at Danone Nations Cup – Where Kids Pursue Dreams #DNC2017

During the winter, you’ll find our children playing a game of shinny on our backyard ice rink. In the summer those hockey nets become soccer nets for a quick game of soccer.

Soccer is an accessible sport for all children.  All you require is a soccer ball, friends, and before you know it you stumble on the perfect game. Quickly the rules fall into place, teamwork naturally happens and the skill forms with practice. Most importantly, soccer builds social skills, teamwork, determination, self-esteem, pushing children to reach a goal.
All our children played soccer from a young age; it was the first sport they ever played on a team and at home. I remember them as toddlers barely walking and kicking the little ball with precision.

Healthy Active Lifestyles with Danone Canada

Your active children may enjoy Danone as a tasty and healthy go-to snack. Many parents pack it in our lunches and gobble up a container for breakfast in a rush to get the kids to soccer practice on Saturday morning. But Danone is much more than yogurt. Interesting to know that for 21 year’s Danone’s been working hard to continue to support Breakfast Clubs of Canada. As a result, improving the quality of life of Canadian children from coast to coast.

Danone Nations Cup – Biggest Soccer Tournament for Children Aged 10 to 12

As Canada’s leading yogurt manufacturer, Danone’s mission is to bring healthy food to Canadians and to promote overall healthy active lifestyles. Danone’s mission pairs perfectly with the major initiative like the Danone Nations Cup. Since 1999, over 32 countries now take part in this international competition. This year, Danone Nations Cup is very proud to expand the selection process by bringing separate boys’ and girls’ teams to the international final. As a result, they are opening the doors to more Canadian children aged 10 to 12 for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Grab A Ball!

No matter if you call it football or soccer grab a ball get active with your children this summer. Nothing beats the feeling of working as a team with an identical goal in mind. I just love this picture below of our son this spring playing at a soccer tournament. He played his best, pushed himself and most importantly had fun making memories with his friends. Perhaps, he’ll play for Team Canada one day at the Danone Nations Cup?

    We have a few soccer players in the family. That is great that Danone is doing this, what an experience for those lucky enough to be picked.

  2. kathy downey says:

    My granddaughter really enjoys soccer!

  3. One of my sons plays soccer but just for fun on a non-competitive team. This sounds like such a fun experience for kids who are really into the sport! Kudos to Danone for sponsoring a fun event!

  4. I’m not sure about soccer STARS in our home, but my kids love to play “ball” 🙂 And soccer is surely so much more affordable than hockey.

  5. Stephanie LaPlante says:

    Soccer is such a fun sport to watch. My little cousins play.

  6. I love how soccer continues to grow in Canada…look out hockey! As Tammy said it really is a sport accessible to all….you just need a ball or something round.
