The team is a South Okanagan Youth Soccer Association District competitive team that plays in the Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League and travels to many different tournaments including various college showcase tournaments.

The team travelled to Phoenix, Arizona in early April.

Players will travel to Redmond, Washington in May where they will compete in the Showcase of Champions Tournament.

Later in the season they will travel to Calgary, Chilliwack and Spokane as well as Aldergrove for the 2012 Provincial Championships.

The funds raised through sponsorship will help the boys and their families cover the costs of travel.
