Camp Founders

Undefeated Soccer Camp was developed and founded by Sunny Minhas and Rory Hayes. Sunny and Rory were born and raised in Calgary, and having spent their youth in Calgary, they understand the needs of the City’s communities. Between the two of them, Sunny and Rory have had well over a decade of experience working and assisting youth ages 5-18. They have worked at summer camps over the years as counselors, supervisors and regional coordinators. Currently, Sunny and Rory are high school teachers, and in addition to teaching, they both coach sports throughout the school year. Ever since they were teenagers, Sunny and Rory have dreamt of opening a summer camp that offers excellent child care and provides children with quality soccer skills instruction. The goal of Undefeated Soccer Camp is for children to learn valuable life skills like teamwork, develop soccer skills, to create life-long memories with their peers and counsellors and most importantly: to have fun!
