Eric Tasker Inducted into Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame!
Eric "Mr. Soccer" Tasker, Co-Founder and President of the Okanagan Challenge Soccer Club was inducted posthumously in the Builder category of the Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame.
The First Twenty Years
The club was founded in 1989 as a registered not-for-profit society with the aim of providing a level of senior soccer not previously available in Kelowna.
We compete in the Pacific Coast Soccer league which is the top echelon of amateur soccer in Western Canada.
We have a proud history of achievements:
The Challenge Team has been involved in summer soccer camps for many hundreds of local youth players almost every year since 1992.
Well-known players and coaches of the team have included Ian Bridge, Shaun Lowther, Pat Onstad and Rob Friend, who have all been Canadian National Soccer Team Players.
The team usually comprises of ten to fifteen local, talented players augmented by four to seven players from out of town.
Our appreciation goes out to past and present players, sponsors and supporters over the years of the Challenge’s history.
