It is amazing what transpires out of a visit to Hillside Stadium. Last year, Hardeep Chahal and his Kamloops Youth Soccer team were part of the TRU WolfPack’s soccer experience.
He was so impressed with what he saw that he immediately asked how he could get involved with helping the program financially.
The result? Chahal’s law firm: Chahal Priddle LLP has announced a two year sponsorship athletics at Thompson Rivers University. The agreement is for $10, 000 with $5,000 going towards the men’s soccer program. The rest will be to support the Sports Task Force golf tournament (which goes to student athlete scholarships).
“Chahal Priddle LLP is committed to supporting the pursuit of excellence at TRU, both in academics and athletics. We firmly believe the development of athletes at higher levels encourages the involvement and participation of our community and our youth in sport. We further believe that TRU Athletics assists athletes in developing core values and ethics which positively impacts our community.”
Says WolfPack head coach John Antulov: “Our soccer program is delighted and humbled at the gracious support that Chahal Priddle has given our program. This is a fantastic endorsement of our program and TRU Athletics.”
Added Athletics and Recreation Director Ken Olynyk: “This sponsorship will go a long way to helping our student athletes achieve their scholastic and athletic goals. Our program would not succeed without their support and the support of all our business and community partners.”
