Thunder Bay Chill care for Thunder Bay
Chill head coach and director of soccer programs Tony Colistro; can’t believe how much time each players puts into the community functions.
“When I look for players to play for this team, I’m not only looking at technical and physical qualities, but just as important are personalities, dedication, and good citizens. This type of player will help our organization fulfill part of our mission in being the most-community focused sports team in town”.
The Thunder Bay Chill attend countless community events in Thunder Bay to support local youth, and other groups.
