Mark your Calendar ... July 1 - 3rd ... Pimentel Cup
What is the Pimentel Cup?
The Pimentel Cup is going to be the greatest soccer tournament Edmonton has seen and the highlight of the 2016 Outdoor Soccer Season. The tournament is being hosted by the Lago Lindo Community League, and is being put on in conjunction with support from EMSA and the City of Edmonton, and is a special tournament to thank and show our support for Joe Pimentel as he battles Stage IV Stomach Cancer.
For those wondering who Joe Pimentel is, it is hard to know where to start, but if you have played soccer with Edmonton Minor Soccer, chances are he has been involved in ensuring you can play in some way. Joe has coached a plethora of teams in Lago Lindo over the past decade. He currently coaches his daughter's U16 Girls team, a team which has been recognized around the province as fierce competitors in the community program. Joe is also a referee with Alberta Soccer, having refereed hundreds of games over the years and has been responsible for the development and mentorship of the younger referees that join our program every year. In recent years, Joe has become quite involved behind the scenes, a core member of the Lago Lindo Community Soccer Program, a member of the EMSA North Board of Directors, the Official Referee Assignor for the North Zone, and was the recipient of the Volunteer of the Year Award for 2015 from EMSA.
