Nutrilait January 18

Nutrilait player of the month - January

The Nutrilait player of the month, a program presented by Nutrilait, is an opportunity for Academy coaches to put forward and reward a player from the U14 and U15 group that distinguished himself, each month. The selection is based on athletic, academic and community criteria that tale into account the player’s efforts, progression, perseverance and involvement. Another important point is the player’s capacity to show initiative and leadership with different actions within the club or the community, all the while respecting the values of the Impact Academy.

The player of the month will have his photo displayed by the Centre Nutrilait locker rooms and will get a $200 gift card at Evangelista Sports.

Chance Therrien

“Chance has been fantastic in the month of January,” said his coach Eduardo Sebrango. “He looked more and more comfortable in the Academy environment and it showed in his performances in practices and games during this month. One thing that has been remarkable through the month of January is his daily consistency. His attitude in practice is as good as anyone’s in the group and his desire to learn and improve his game is an example to follow for the other Academy players. Another thing worth mentioning is his versatility, as he can play in different positions.”

“In January, Keesean continued to show positive signs of progress, while staying professional in the way he globally approaches the sport,” said Impact U15 head coach Serge Dinkota. “He is one of the examples we have at the Academy of a player with a lot of confidence and initiative, which are important for us. Keesean still has to improve some aspects of his game, but his competitive attitude will help him get closer to his goals.”
