The Mike Pettingale Memorial Soccer Scholarship
Mike Pettingale was one of Westside’s all time most avid supporters. He had a club wide fan mentality … and for two decades supported all of Westside and everything that the club brought to the lives of its members. He contributed to the atmosphere of the club, and particularly along the sidelines. Never happier than when he was at a match, he loved seeing his friends, the coaches & managers, the players and the other supporters and the referees. He loved to join in the banter and made many a friend at pitches all over. (Before the Internet, you needed to ask Mike if you wanted to know how all the other Westside teams were doing that day. 😉 We miss his smiling face on the sidelines. Mike passed away in 2006.
Here is the application form with guidelines (pdf).
The deadline is May 1st each year.

She displayed a remarkable energy level and maturity in her studies and her community service through high school. Graduating from the Vancouver GU18 metro team, Shanay is touted to become a force in College footy as she joins the Kwantlen College womens soccer program. Given her metro, high school and tournament soccer success to date, this seems pretty likely.
