It was a very successful 2022 for the Kindersley Kobras football team.
The group on the field exceeded expectations by reaching the provincial semi-final, and their season accomplishments were celebrated last Thursday night at their annual end of season banquet.
The event typically doubles as an Annual General Meeting, but is mostly focused on the awards:
Check out the award winners above, as there was lots to celebrate at this year's banquet such as the fact that the team has moved into their new clubhouse.
The night started off as the Kobra Football Parents Association opened with official business appointing members for next year. President Christy Krahn offered up her position as she offered to remain on helping as a member at large, but not in the capacity of president next year with no kids left playing football. Some parents stepped up, but more help is going to be necessary to fill the Kobras board next year.
Another thing tabled as part of the AGM was the financial report from the group treasurer, a big topic of discussion with the clubhouse now finally finished.
The team held a bottle drive earlier this year that helped out tremendously. It was one of a few held over the years, as the community can definitely claim some of that clubhouse as their own after countless years of support. The clubhouse expense this year came in at over $76,000, and a total just under $78,000.
When the team's head coach Myron Beswitherick had his chance to speak it was focused on the team itself, the group that will be utilizing the new space built just for them for the many years to come. He gave massive props to all of his Grade 12 players for the role they played creating a winning environment and shouted out the home wins against Kerrobert and Unity as his favorites from the past season.
Coach believes the team ultimately bought into their message of "sacrifice" that had been preached all season long.
Krahn then took the microphone back with a big thanks to all those who have helped over the years, and those that will continue.
A big thanks goes out to all of the extra help the Kobras received this year too, such as the local food truck in town that took a massive responsibility off the backs of the parents.
