Profile: Cohen O’Brien

Cohen, thanks to the funding from the Haisla Youth Sports Fund, was able to participate in another action-packed season of lacrosse with the Kitimat Wolverines. Cohen travelled with the Bantam/Midget team to Prince George to play the very physical sport. This dedicated group of parents who volunteered their time and their love of the sport has brought lacrosse back to Kitimat. During the summer, Cohen has enjoyed playing Soccer on the larger field with the Junior/Senior Boys team. Cohen also can be found “within the pipes” as a goalie in Hockey in the winter. These two sports have really given Cohen the opportunities to learn about his confidence and respect for others. The mental aspects that come along with playing in organized sports at a higher age level are great life skills to be learned, especially from adults other than his parents. A HUGE thank you to the Haisla Youth Sports Fund Sponsors!! Our 5 children have participated in multiple sports throughout the years, and we are very grateful for the opportunities we have been able to give our children thanks especially to the Haisla Sports Fund.
