Boys Blues REP Team Matsugu – U15
Team photo from 2018-2019 season.
SBA is blessed to have so many great coaches.
Brad Matsugu who coaches the U15 Blues is one of them. Brad is helping to honour 13 year old Jay Kumar who passed away in 2014 from a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, an extremely rare condition. The disease affects the brain stem and usually occurs in children aged five to 10. Even though Jay was not feeling 100%, he battled through the symptoms and travelled to Kingston, Ontario to support his teammates as they played in their season’s final tournament, the Ontario Cup.
Brad has been working with this tournament from the beginning and would appreciate any support you can give by participating, volunteering, donating or sharing the day to remember Jay.
