The North Delta Soccer Club is pleased to inform that they are accepting applications for their Scholarship Program. We are proud to award scholarships to 3 worthy players in the amount of $1000 each to individuals proceeding on to post-secondary education.
This year we are also pleased to offer an additional scholarship called the Cody Kehler Memorial Scholarship. The family of Cody are proud to award 1 NDSC worth player in the amount of $1500 to a player who is proceeding on to post-secondary education.
Cody Kehler, former NDSC players was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 17. Cody strived to be the best person he could be in all aspects of his life; school, sports, family, friends and community. He was a selfless person, an honour-roll student and lived his life performing random acts of kindness, promoting good will and wanting the world to be a better place. Cody played soccer at a young age in North Delta and went on to play rep soccer until he left North Delta at the age of 14. To continue Cody’s legacy, Cody’s family have set out to give back to the communities that touched Cody’s life. The family feels that North Delta is a community they want to give back to as Cody was raised here and always wanted to help others wherever he could.
