2019 Azzurri Day

Dear Parents/Players/Coaches

It’s hard to believe we have come to the end of the season.  With that comes Toronto Azzurri Day and our year-end BBQ.  This year we are dividing our year end BBQ festivities into two days. 

MINI AZZURRI DAY Under 4, 5, and 6-year-old

We will be celebrating Mini Azzurri Day on Thursday August 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Azzurri clubhouse.  There will be fun activities for the athletes.  6 stations of activity will be created on the Stadium field and the players will move through these activity stations, face painting etc.  They will be able to collect their participation medal and pictures at the end of the evening.  

The Coach of each team will be given three tickets for each player on their team.  Each ticket is good for 1 (one) hamburger (beef) or hotdog (beef), and 1 (one) juice.  If you require additional food tickets, please attend the Administration Office in the Clubhouse.  If you child has any dietary restrictions, please let us know by Monday August 12.  We will do our best to accommodate the restrictions.  We look forward to having a great evening with our youngest members.

We will try to accommodate the request as best as possible.  If your child has a nut allergy – we cannot guarantee that the food being served is nut free or has not come, in contact with nuts.
