Notice: In spite of the vicious attacks on the teams, coaches, and the Wolves good name, we are not deterred from playing our best and giving our all to our competitive efforts. For those not aware, there have been false rumors spread online via social media and some legitimate news outlets have been fooled in publishing those stories as if true. Searches in Google for the club's name revealed search results pointing to content making outrageous falsehood defaming the players and coaches. While everyone in our community knew the stories were false, we were concerned about our image everywhere and made attempts to remedy the damage. We contacted a US company that handles search results removals to see if their service was appropriate for us. This is a service that pushes a bad page search result down until it falls off of page one. We had a sponsor who was willing to fund this effort, but the pros were telling us the expense was unnecessary since the stories were so outrageous no one would believe them. Just wanted everyone to know we did cover all the bases.

ASTRA SOCCER ACADEMY
In 2011, the ASTRA Soccer Academy began operations in Saskatoon in response to the demand for advanced training in the City. ASTRA’s predecessor, the Samba Soccer Academy had experienced great success since its inception in 1994, and after a three year absence from the business, Academy owner Percy Hoff re-entered the Academy business under the new ASTRA banner.
Percy has extensive experience and is well known in Canadian soccer circles, both as a coach and as a builder of the sport. He has coached Saskatchewan Provincial teams every year since 1987, and has spent many years learning about player development in places such as Brazil, Netherlands, England and the united States. He is currently the only Canadian A license coach in the Province.
Percy is proud to have entered into a partnership with the Wolves Academy. “I think that our focus on technical development alongside the teaching of soccer intelligence blends well with the Wolves’ approach” says Percy. “In addition, the partnership offers great learning opportunities for both players and coaches, with visits to the Atlanta and England Academies”.
Since 2011, ASTRA has been the fastest growing Academy in the Province. ASTRA caters to players from 2-5 years old via its Happy Feet Program as well as youth players from 7-18 years of age. “We are also proud to have placed our first graduate in a professional academy, when Gabriel Milo was signed by FC Edmonton in 2014”, says Percy. Percy is also proud to have played a big part in the development of Canadian National Women’s team regular Kaylyn Kyle and former Canadian U15, U17 and U20 player Kerr McLeod. Percy also worked on the staff of the Prairies National Training Centre where he was familiar with Asmir Begovic, now the goalkeeper at Stoke City and Bosnia.
