CR Wave U13 girls receive a Flood of support

Dr. Tanya Flood, a local optometrist with Coastal Eyecare Centres, donated funding for the new team uniforms and gear

Sunday marked a special day for the Campbell River Wave U13 girls rep soccer team…they received new uniforms, matching gear bag and water bottles, thanks to a local sponsor.

Dr. Tanya Flood, a local optometrist with Coastal Eyecare Centres, donated funding for the new team uniforms and gear. Dr. Flood has helped sponsor and organize many other community events, such as the Success by 6  program and the annual Terry Fox run.

“I believe strongly in supporting the youth of our community as they make positive and healthy choices,” Flood said. She has watched this team develop since its inception. Her daughter is a team member, and her husband, Chris, coaches the girls.

“Over this past two years, the amazing young women of the CR Wave have shown dedication to positive choices related to physical activity, healthy eating and team work. They consistently put forward their best effort and are learning what it means to support their teammates both on and off the field.  I am delighted to be able to support them in their endeavours, as they proudly wear their team uniforms.”
