The U10 Cochrane Wolves Boy's Soccer team walked away from Airdrie Football Club's Summit Tournament with a silver medal.

The tournament had over 200 teams participate, the Wolves were in one division of six teams, playing 7 on 7 soccer.

Aron Ferchuk, U10 Cochrane Wolves coach, says it was a busy weekend.

"We had a team of 12 boys from the Cochrane area," he says. "We won our first game 7-4, tied our second game at 3, then we played in the final Sunday, and lost 7-1."

Although a silver medal wasn't the result the team was hoping for, Ferchuk explains learning how to be on the losing end in sports is important.

"We had lots of growth experiences for kids, winning and losing, for kids that are 8 and 9 years old. They're learning how to play sports, it's part of our long term player development plan, which exposes kids at the appropriate ages to team sports."

Ferchuk shares it's been compelling to watch this team grow over the spring program.

"They've been looking well, they're at the age where they stop goofing around a little bit, the competitive side is kicking in, its neat to see these kids do the transition."

The U10 Cochrane Wolves Soccer spring program ends next week, the summer program will start at the beginning of July.
