To all Soccer Academy Alliance Canada Supporters:
Today we have a difficult message for our supporters regarding Gary Miller; one of the four founding Academy members of SAAC.
Gary Miller was an enormous personality within the Ontario and Canadian soccer community; his sudden passing is very saddening for all of us here at SAAC.
Gary and Cindy Miller, through Bryst International Academy Inc., were founding members of SAAC. Through Gary’s knowledge and participation, he contributed to a standard based development approach for youth players which can be observed today, at the heart of many Academies and Clubs, right across the province.
We thank Gary for his contributions, foresight, commitment, and the professionalism he has brought to our soccer community. Gary’s daily efforts, technical knowledge, and passion for the game have left us all in a better place to enjoy the game, well into our futures.
Our thoughts, sympathies and condolences are with Gary’s family during this very difficult time of loss.
We will all miss Gary Miller dearly.
Chairman of Soccer Academy Alliance of Canada
