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.
U14 Nutrilait player of the month
“Tidiane was with his amateur club until the end of September, so it took a while before he was fully part of the Academy, but he quickly became an example to follow on and off the field,” said Impact U14 head coach Eduardo Sebrango. “He is focused on his individual development and serious in practices. He analyzes his game and corrects his mistakes. His performances during games are always getting better, but what impresses me the most is his competitive spirit, his devotion to the team and his leadership on the field.”
U15 Nutrilait player of the month
“In November, Matthew stood out on the field, but also at school,” said Impact U15 head coach Serge Dinkota. “He completed his first academic term with an average over 85%, which shows his ability to be good at school and on the field, a priority for us at the Academy. On the field, he had a good month of November and progressed regularly in his performances. Because of this, he got to train with the U17 group.”
Soccer is an inspiring sport for the youth and that’s why Nutrilait is the proud official sponsor of the Centre Nutrilait and presenting partner of the Montreal Impact Academy and Pre-Academy (U8 to U15). Through its association with the Academy, Nutrilait wants to offer a development platform to the young athletes to help them surpass themselves.
