SPARTA – McMASTER PARTNERSHIP
Hamilton Sparta and the McMaster Men’s and Women’s Soccer programs have been developing a partnership over the past 3 years which has provided benefits to both organizations and which is continuing to flourish. The head coaches of both of McMaster’s varsity teams, Dino Perri on the men’s side and Joe Valvasori with the women’s team, are Sparta coaches, as are most of the assistants who have been working with both teams. The two organizations have combined to run a pre-season tournament/festival which attracts over 100 teams to the Mac campus each April. Many of the Mac players provide their expertise in staffing our developmental academies and several of them coach our Sparta teams. Some of our teams have taken part in the Athlete’s Edge fitness program and many players have benefitted from their Sports Medicine program in diagnosing and rehabilitating injuries. A number of exciting partnership initiatives are being planned for the upcoming year. We encourage Sparta families to attend and learn from the home games being played at McMaster this season…it’s the highest level of soccer you will see in this city.
The third annual Hamilton Sparta coaches game took place at the new Ancaster Soccer Centre. The spirits were high as five teams competed against each other. Many generations of from teenagers to senior took part in the event. Lots of action and fun for all. Well done Sparta coaches, assistants and managers.
Hamilton Sparta took the spot-light at the 2015 Hamilton Soccer Hall of Fame Banquet where Dino Perri , our u9b coach, was inducted in the Players category, after his illustrious career in youth, high school, university and professional soccer, and John Valvasori, our president, was recognized in the Builders category for his longstanding contributions as a coach to his teams, club president of Hamilton Sparta, and administrator at many levels of high school sports
