Cullen & Hayden Plester

Coaches have played an important role in the athletic development of brothers Cullen and Hayden Plester.

“They did very well and I really like them as coaches,’’ said Cullen, 10, of his lacrosse team. “And they made me a lot better of a player.’’

Hayden, who turned 13 on Aug. 5, added of his RiverCats Peewee AA baseball coaches: “They’ve helped me out a lot with my skills and everything. They’ve tried to make me the best player I can and I thank them for that.’’

Parents Sue and Chuck have also been instrumental in supporting the kids in all their sports.

“Thank you for taking us there and we really enjoyed it,’’ said Cullen. “Thanks for letting us go all these places so we can play with our teams and do all the fun things.’’

Hayden concurred.

“It’s really helped me a lot,’’ he said. “They’ve made it possible for me to play all these sports by getting me to the places that I need to be.’’

Cullen has played Cowichan Thunder lacrosse for four years as well as Atom A hockey and, previously, baseball.

Besides baseball, Hayden also played Peewee B hockey last season. “They’re both my favourite sports right now,’’ he said.
