Team Canada U-20 trains in Toronto on road to Korea Republic 2017


 28 August 2015 in Men's U-20
Building on a good start to the U-20 cycle, a group of young players hoping to take part in the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017 has gathered for its latest camp under coach Rob Gale.
Gale guided this group of 1997-born players through a tournament in Slovakia in April, but now has assembled the team in Toronto for an eight-day training camp.
“This is the first domestic camp I have had which is going to be great,” said Gale, noting that the camp fits well with the FIFA World Cup Qualifier also in Toronto next week.
“The camp will be a first opportunity for me to look at some of the players from the last U-17 cycle and build them into the group that has done well on our last two European tours.”
Training starts on Monday 31 August and will mostly take place at the Kia Training Ground, the training venue of Toronto FC. It wraps up with a final day of training on Saturday 5 September.
The camp comes at the tail end of the U-20 identification camp involving League1 Ontario players and a handful of players from that camp will be asked to participate in the Canadian team portion of the camp.
“I thoroughly believe that continuing to build partnerships and alliances is very important to secure a better future for the game in Canada,” said Tony Fonseca, Canada Soccer Technical Director, of the process that sees some League1 players included in this camp.
On 4 September, the U-20 players will watch Canada face Belize at BMO Field in a FIFA World Cup Qualifiers home-and-away elimination series. All Canadian fans are encouraged to support the team on the road to Russia 2018, with tickets to this match available via Ticketmaster.ca starting at just $20. The match, presented by BMO, will also be broadcast across the country on canadasoccer.com.

A joint delegation from FIFA and the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ Russia Local Organising Committee (LOC) is preparing to make its second operational planning tour of the stadiums.
During the tour, which will run 1-11 September, the delegation will visit the stadiums in the four FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 host cities – Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Sochi and Moscow. The delegation will also find out more about the design and future operation of the remaining arenas (Ekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Saransk and Volgograd) to be used in the 2018 FIFA World Cup by virtual visits presented by the local operational teams of the respective stadiums at meetings in Moscow.
The delegation is formed by operational experts and will be led by the LOC CEO, Alexey Sorokin, and by FIFA’s Head of World Cup Office, Chris Unger. It is important to note that the main objective of the visit is not to assess the construction status of the arenas, but rather discuss how the stadiums will operate during the events.
Participants are experts in stadium design, event preparation and management, security, transport, logistics, hospitality services, television broadcasting, media operations, healthcare services, personnel, marketing, ticketing and sustainability. It will also include representatives from the relevant ministries and other government agencies.
During the planning tour, there will be a short media opportunity with Alexey Sorokin and Chris Unger at each stadium. A media briefing summing up the results of the tour will take place in Moscow (more details will follow in due course).
Agenda for Media Opportunities at the stadiums:
2 September: Saint Petersburg – 13:00

Yuri Konoplev Academy keeps Governor Cup in Samara region

20 August 2015 11:37 CET

17 August. Metallurg stadium, Samara. U15 team from Yuri Konoplev Football Academy (Togliatti, Samara region, Russia) won the tournament final. Anna Shaimardanova
12 teams from European part of Russia leaded by the boys from the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ host cities (Samara, Sochi, Saransk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Moscow and Volgograd regions) fought for 7 days for the right to lift the 2015 Samara Region Governor Cup.
The best team of the tournament is the Yuri Konoplev Football Academy, same as a year before. The second are boys from local Krylia Sovetov PFC. Young players of Khimky FC (Moscow Region) finished the competition in third place.
“It was a good tournament for us”, – Academy’s captain Vladislav Nikonov hugs the trophy. “The games were tight, we had to fight and I felt happy when we won our derby over Krylia, we defended our title as the Cup winners which my school had got a year ago! I will be only 17 in 2018, despite I am going to work hard, and it is difficult to imagine that I can get a chance to play for Russia national team at the World Cup. On the other hand, my heart stops every time I think the 2018 FIFA brings the best of World football in Samara too. Probably I will be lucky enough to watch Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo themselves. Together with my friends, we look forward in 2018!”


Eugenie BOUCHARD TO FACE RISKE; RAONIC AGAINST SMYCZEK AT US OPEN 2015; nPospisil could take on No. 1 Djokovic in second round



Eugenie BOUCHARD TO FACE RISKE; RAONIC AGAINST SMYCZEK AT US OPEN
Pospisil could take on No. 1 Djokovic in second round

Toronto, August 27, 2015 – The official draws for the 2015 US Open were conducted in New York on Thursday, setting the stage for the final Slam of the season. Canada will be represented in the singles main draw by Eugenie Bouchard (Montreal), Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver), and Milos Raonic (Thornhill, Ont.), all of whom received direct entries into the tournament.

Bouchard is seeded No. 25 and will play American Alison Riske, world No. 56, in the first round. Bouchard holds a 4-1 record over Riske, including a victory earlier this year at Eastbourne. The 21-year-old’s best result at the US Open is the fourth round, which she accomplished last year. She is in the same quarter as No. 3 Maria Sharapova and could face No. 7 Ana Ivanovic in the third round.

In the men’s event, No. 10 seed Raonic will be challenged by world No. 95 Tim Smyczek of the United States in his opening match. It will be their first meeting. A victory and Raonic would play a former Top 10 player in the second round, either Spaniard Fernando Verdasco or German Tommy Haas. Raonic sits inside the same quarter as world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and could face No. 8 Rafael Nadal in the fourth round. He has never made the US Open quarter-finals, reaching the round of 16 the past three straight years.

Also in the same quarter as Djokovic is world No. 45 Pospisil, who could face the nine-time Grand Slam champion in the second round if he advances past his opening opponent. Pospisil will face Austrian Andreas Haider-Maurer in the first round. The 25-year-old, who is coming off his first-ever Slam quarter-final appearance at Wimbledon, beat No. 52 Haider-Maurer in their only previous ATP World Tour meeting back in 2012 at Vienna. Pospisil will be looking to make the second round of the US Open for the second time in his career and first since 2011.

Action at the US Open will begin on Monday and run through till September 13.

BOUCHARD AFFRONTERA RISKE; RAONIC CONTRE SMYCZEK AUX INTERNATIONAUX DES ÉTATS-UNIS  
Pospisil pourrait croiser le fer avec Djokovic au deuxième tour

Toronto, le 27 août 2015 – Le tirage officiel des tableaux principaux du simple des Internationaux des États-Unis a été effectué jeudi à New York. En simple, le Canada sera représenté par Eugenie Bouchard (Montréal), Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver) et Milos Raonic (Thornhill, ON).

Bouchard, qui est la 25e tête de série, aura comme première adversaire l’Américaine Alison Riske, 56e mondiale. Bouchard possède une fiche de quatre victoires et une défaite contre Riske, y compris un gain à Eastbourne un peu plus tôt cette année. Le meilleur résultat de la Canadienne de 21 ans à New York est un quatrième tour, ce qu’elle a réalisé l’an dernier. Bouchard est dans la même partie du tableau que Maria Sharapova (3e) et pourrait affronter Ana Ivanovic (7e) au troisième tour.

Du côté masculin, Raonic (10e) croisera le fer avec l’Américain Tim Smyczek (95e) dans ce qui sera leur premier duel. Au deuxième tour, Raonic pourrait se trouver sur la route d’un ancien Top 10, soit l’Espagnol Fernando Verdasco ou l’Allemand Tommy Haas. Raonic est dans le même quart du tableau que le numéro un mondial Novak Djokovic et pourrait être opposé à Rafael Nadal au quatrième tour. Au cours des trois dernières années, Raonic a atteint les huitièmes de finale à Flushing Meadows.  

Vasek Pospisil, 45e sur l’échiquier mondial, se trouve également dans le même quart du tableau que Djokovic et pourrait affronter le détenteur de neuf titres du Grand Chelem dès le deuxième tour. En entrée de jeu, Pospisil rencontrera l’Autrichien Andreas Haider-Maurer. Le joueur de 25 ans, qui a pris part à son premier quart de finale d’un Grand Chelem à Wimbledon, avait vaincu Haider-Maurer, 52e, à leur seul affrontement précédent, à Vienne, en 2012. Pospisil tentera d’accéder au deuxième tour des Internationaux des États-Unis pour la deuxième fois de sa carrière et pour la première fois depuis 2011.

Les Internationaux des États-Unis se dérouleront du 31 août au 13 septembre.

HEAT WARNINGS IN TORONTO: Five horrible things extreme heat does to the human body



 

    


Daniel Martins
Digital Reporter
Sunday, August 16, 2015, 6:28 AM - Heat warnings cover most of Ontario and stretch as far as Montreal this weekend, and there's little let up for the next few days. When those 30-degree days arrive, feeling even hotter with the humidity, that's when Environment Canada and the country's major cities start issuing heat warnings.
We've previously talked about five terrible things extreme cold does to humans. Now, here are five horrible effects of extreme heat.
Your body starts acting weird
The human body has an internal temperature of around 37oC, and it does NOT like it when that very specific figure wobbles in either direction. Changes of as little as a single degree can cause your body’s delicate biochemistry to glitch in unpleasant ways.

You’d think that prolonged exposure to heat and humidity would have straightforward effects (you’ll read more about heat exhaustion and heat stroke down below), but sometimes the resulting malfunctions can take some odd forms.
Ever had a muscle cramp on a really hot day, say, while doing some heavy lifting? There’s a good chance the temperature is to blame.
What’s happened is that you’ve sweated out a lot of water, but even if you’ve been drinking water to replace it, you’re not getting enough electrolytes. The resulting salt imbalance is what’s causing the cramps.
For people really not used to the heat, there’s a risk of heat edema. To avoid overheating, your body dilates your blood vessels to try radiate as much heat away from your system as possible, causing blood to pool in your ankles.
Even sweating can sometimes not go as it’s supposed to. If you develop tiny red spots on your skin, with a prickly sensation, that’s a heat rash, caused when your sweat pores become blocked.
And according to the U.S. Centres for Disease Control, if you are exposed to extreme heat for a prolonged period, you may stop sweating altogether, a step on the road to potentially fatal heat stroke.
Before you get there, however, the extreme heat will do some unpleasant things to your head as well.
Your brain doesn't work right
In 2014, Canadian tennis pro Frank Dancevic had a rather unusual court invasion.

Frank Dancevic 2013 US Open.JPG
"Frank Dancevic 2013 US Open" by Alexisrael - Own work. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons.
Like the other players at the Australian Open in Melbourne, he was struggling through a set in record heat, which became so overwhelming he apparently started seeing comic book characters.
"I was dizzy from the middle of the first set and then I saw Snoopy and I thought, 'Wow Snoopy, that’s weird,'" Dancevic said, according to Slate Magazine. "I couldn’t keep my balance anymore and I leaned over the fence and when I woke up people were all around me."
Confusion and dizziness are common effects of too much exposure to extreme heat, thanks to increased blood flow to dilated blood vessels and fluid loss through sweating.
It’s a real hazard for workers who need to keep their concentration in such conditions. The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) says aside from increased irritability, you start losing the ability to do skilled or mental tasks.
As for Dancevic’s loss of consciousness, that was potentially something called heat syncope, a temporary drop in blood flow to the brain which occurs when you’ve lost a lot of body fluid due to sweating and low blood pressure.
That could also have accounted for the dizziness too, but given his prolonged exposure, it was just as likely heat exhaustion.
Heat exhaustion sets in
So far we’ve talked about the strange little symptoms of excessive heat, like heat rashes and blood pooling in the ankles. Heat exhaustion is when you’ve lost enough body fluids and salt that the body starts losing its ability to cope.

As your core temperature rises further above the body’s natural 37oC sweet spot, your sweating gets heavier, your thirst becomes intense, your dizziness increases and you feel increasingly fatigued.
Your nausea may reach the point you start to vomit, and diarrhea may set in. Those muscle cramps we talked about earlier may happen more frequently, you’ll experience palpitations, and tingling or numbness of the hands or feet.
You may not feel all of these at once, but even a couple of these symptoms in either yourself or a companion should be enough to raise the alarm.
The CCOHS recommends:
  • Get medical aid. Stay with the person until help arrives.
  • Move to a cooler, shaded location.
  • Remove as many clothes as possible (including socks and shoes).
  • Apply cool, wet cloths or ice to head, face or neck. Spray with cool water.
  • Encourage the person to drink water, clear juice, or a sports drink.
And you’d better do it fast. Without treatment, the sufferer may find themselves in the grip of potentially deadly heat stroke.
Heat stroke takes you to death's door
If you think you’re seeing signs of full-fledged heat stroke, all medical authorities say to call 911. It is that serious.
If someone is at the stage of heat stroke, their core temperature is at 40oC or greater, and their body’s mechanisms for handling the heat have failed. That can include the loss of so much body fluid that sweating stops altogether (although that does not occur in all cases).

Heat stroke shares some symptoms with heat exhaustion, but the most acute to watch out for (according to CCOHS) are:
  • Hot, dry skin or profuse sweating
  • Confusion
  • Loss of consciousness.
  • Seizures
  • Very high body temperature
It can follow on from untreated heat exhaustion, or can happen without little or no warning.
While you’re waiting for medical help to arrive, the victim has to be moved to a cool, shaded place and have as many clothes removed as possible. Cold cloths or ice should be applied, but CCOHS says not to try force the person to drink liquids.
And all this has to be done fast. Although prompt treatment can guarantee survival, the American Family Physician says heat stroke can have a mortality rate of 10 per cent.
Yes, people absolutely can die in extreme heat events. And quite a few have.
Heat waves can kill thousands
When officials decide whether to issue a heat warning, Europe's summer of 2003 can't be far from their thinking.

In August of that year, a stubborn area of high pressure parked itself over a large chunk of the continent, sending temperatures soaring to record levels for weeks at a time.
The result: An estimated 70,000 people lost their lives, with 15,000 in France.
Cities in heat warnings urge people to check on the elderly, and they were the ones who suffered the most in Europe. Live Science says many of the dead were elderly women living in the upper floors of poorly ventilated apartment buildings. Heat would have risen via convection, making it hotter and hotter.
In the United States, more than 600 people die every year due to extreme heat, according to the Centres for Disease Control. In the 1995 Chicago heat wave, almost 700 people lost their lives, and thousands went to the emergency room.
It can be hard to get exact numbers however, as often the bodies are discovered after the extreme heat has subsided, making it difficult to ascribe temperature as the main cause of death.
Still, even though the numbers may be fuzzy, the effects of extreme heat aren't: If you don't take it seriously, it can kill.
Keep that in mind the next time you feel like going for a run in 35-degree weather.

The 2nd annual Futsal Canada Conference finished up this past weekend in Toronto with representatives from eleven leagues in three provinces






The 2nd annual Futsal Canada Conference finished up this past weekend in Toronto with representatives from eleven leagues in three provinces in attendance

Futsal Canada Members
The three day event successfully brought everyone together at Metro Hall in downtown Toronto to focus on a variety of futsal items ranging from coaching, officiating, a set tournament calendar, marketing, media relations, the return of the F-PIC's program (futsal player identification camps), and putting pen to paper on a new membership agreement that saw a unanimous decision to collectively move forward.
Directors Bob Tibbo (Ottawa) and Kris Fernandes (Toronto) presented on various topics throughout the conference while taking valuable information and recommendations from an engaging membership that will steer each league and the organization forward.
The recently forged partnership with the Brazilian Futsal Federation from this past summer was widely lauded by all members as the benefits of the agreement will immediately pay dividends to the Canadian futsal community effective this season.
Ontario Soccer Association Ron Smale made a special guest appearance on Sunday to take questions while listening to league executives and taking back recommendations to further the sport's growth in Ontario.
Toronto Soccer Association President Bill Spiers also attended on day 2 and the 35+ year veteran in soccer administration was helpful in answering questions and offering advice in regards to district matters.
Afterwards, members were treated to a complimentary MLS match at Canada's National Stadium, BMO Field.
