Here are the Parkway West Soccer Jamboree Photos from Friday March 13th. Parkway West hosted the Notre Dame Rebels and Oakville Tigers at their place and there were three scrimmages of 35 minutes each. I was on hand to capture the action. I anticipate doing a write up on each of the teams in the hopes that the previews will come in handy later this school year although I will tell you I’m not hopeful in that regard. COVID-19 can be slowed but until there is a vaccine we will be faced with social distancing issues for that timeframe which is estimated at 12-18 months.
On a related note, I first began shooting High School soccer in March 2005. That makes this my 16th year of coverage and I’ll admit that I’m anticipating retirement. I pay Smugmug.com (my photo website provider) $250 a year to host and provide print and download services for my readers. This April will very likely be the last time I renew the service. That means you have a year to access my archives and purchase photos. Your purchases go towards fees like that as well as the website hosting, related software services and camera gear. Travel (over 5,000 miles a year) as well as the time spent (6-8 hours per game when travel, shooting, writing and editing are included) on the 150 games I cover on average annually do add up. I’m a small business and your support is always appreciated.
By the way, that’s sophomore Asia Barcom in goal for Oakville in the feature photo. She’s got a bright future in the net.
