[twitter]The Canadian Women’s Soccer Team is, pretty much, my favorite national team. The women on that team aren’t millionaires chasing medals, they’re hard working athletes who play for the love of the game. Earlier this year I had a chance to interview team captain, Christine Sinclair, and she demonstrated immense leadership and humility .

The resiliency, perseverance, and determination her team showed winning bronze at the London 2012 Olympics made them a worthy choice for 2012 Canadian Team Of The Year.

You want role models for your kids? You’d be hard-pressed to find better ones than the likes of Erin McLeod, Diana Matheson, Rhian Wilkinson, and the rest of the Canadian Women’s National team.

Love Diana Matheson.. let’s see that goal again. (ffwd to 40s)

Those women are now giving back with the BMO Team of the Week program. Each week, one youth team (U8-U13) from across Canada is chosen to be the BMO TOTW.

You can help to ensure every community in Canada is represented this summer by nominating a team in your community at BMOsoccer.com. [Entries close July 12, 2013]

It’s a great combination of amateur soccer, our national program, and the MLS which has fans on their feet across the country. BMO Soccer wants to know which team has the most fanatical fans? How about the ones who bring their kits around the world to Iceland?! Whitecaps FC FTW!
