Port Moody Soccer Club (PMSC) is celebrating the start of play for Canada’s national women’s soccer team at the World Cup with a special free event Thursday, July 20 that the organization hopes will also inspire the next generation of players.

The club’s empowering soccer event at Trasolini Field from 6 – 7:30 p.m. will feature soccer activities for all ages like mini games, skill stations for shooting, dribbling and passing as well as an opportunity to test the power of your shot. There will also be a DJ playing kids' music, a dunk tank to soak volunteer PMSC coaches and a bouncy castle.

“This event is not just about celebrating the upcoming Women’s World Cup and cheering Canada on, but also encouraging new girls and boys players to step up, challenge themselves and have fun while playing the beautiful game with their friends,” said the club in a news release

The event will be followed by a viewing party at nearby Inlet Theatre for Canada’s opening match against Nigeria that begins at 7:30 p.m.
