On December 14th, 2014 the Nepean Hotspurs were very pleased to have their beloved coach, Atul Srivastava, recognized as this year’s recipient of the 4th Annual Ward 9 Volunteer of the Year Award for the category of Sport & Recreation.

Atul has volunteered his time each and every summer for over 10 years with the Nepean Hotspurs Soccer Club as a Recreational program Coach. Our Recreational teams participate in the South Side Soccer League, which includes our Club, Nepean City, Ottawa Royals, Ottawa Internationals, and finally the South and North Dundas Soccer Clubs.

Although Coach Atul’s family have long left youth soccer, he has continued coaching each summer as a dedicated, caring, and principled volunteer. Atul is involved for all of the right reasons, including the desire to make a difference for the children of this community.

Non-profit sport organizations, such as the Nepean Hotspurs Soccer Club, would not be able to offer quality programs for the youth in our community without individuals such as Coach Atul.
