There’s a new soccer tourney in town, and this one could really take root.

There’s a new soccer tourney in town, and this one could really take root.

Kwalikum Secondary School grad Madeleine Dwyer wants to get the word out that they will be hosting a six-a-side soccer tournament for all players aged 16 and up on the fields at KSS this Saturday beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Billed as the Soccer Solstice, all proceeds raised from the tournament will go towards garden projects in Qualicum Beach.

“This summer I’m working on school sustainability projects,” she said, adding “basically I just wanted put on a fun community event to celebrate solstice and try to raise money for the garden project.”
