The Saskatchewan Soccer Association celebrated their best of 2016 at the annual Technical & Recognition Awards. Winners included Male Player of the Year Brett Levis and Female Athlete of the Year Ashley Kambeitz.

The 18 March awards night was held in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Soccer Association's 2017 annual meeting.

Other player award winners were Thomas Hasal as Youth Male Player of the Year, Sarah Ochitwa as Youth Female Player of the Year, and Nick Fetsch as Grassroots Player of the Year. Coach winners were Jerson Barandica-Hamilton as Senior Coach of the Year, Zlatan Dautbegovic as Youth Coach of the Year, and Janelle Layton as Grassroots Coach of the Year; referee winners were Ethan Bent as Referee of the Year and Lauryn Hayes as Grassroots Referee of the Year. Darin Wildman was the Volunteer of the Year and Mark Lord was the David Newsham Outstanding Volunteer Award winner.

The three teams of the year were University of Saskatchewan women as Senior Team of the Year, Eastside U-14 Boys as Youth Team of the Year, and Swift Current United U-17 Girls as Grassroots Team of the Year.

On the evening, the Saskatchewan Soccer Association also recognized winners of the Premier League. Golden Boot winners were Kelly Lowry (U-16 Boys), Olivia Gables (U-16 Girls), and Josh Soifer (U-14 Boys); shutout award winners were Queen City United (U-16 Boys), FC Regina (U-16 Girls), and Eastside (U-14 Boys).

Christine Sinclair has been named "Best of BC" at British Columbia's 51st annual Sport BC awards. Sinclair won the award after an oustanding season with Canada Soccer's Women's National Team as well as Portland Thorns FC.

The Sport BC Athlete of the Year awards were held on 8 March 2017. Sinclair was unable to attend while away on international duty, helping Canada finish second at the 2017 Algarve Cup.

In 2016, Sinclair led Canada to another podium finish at the Women's Olympic Football Tournament. She was again a nominee for FIFA World Player of the Year honours and collected her 13th Canadian Player of the Year award. In leading Canada to a program-best 16 international wins on the calendar year, Sinclair helped Canada climb to fourth on the FIFA Women's World Rankings. 

Along the way, she became the second highest goalscorer in women's international football. She also won her seventh CONCACAF medal (one gold, five silver, one bronze) after Canada finished second at the CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

At the club level, Sinclair led Portland Thorns FC to an NWSL Shield. In the National Women's Soccer League, she scored seven goals in 12 appearances with Portland Thorns FC and was named the NWSL Player of the Olympic Games. Down the stretch, she scored four goals in the last five games to help Portland clinch that regular-season title.

Watch Christine Sinclair in 2017
Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will return home to play Costa Rica in Winnipeg on 8 June and in Toronto on 11 June. The matches will mark the first meetings between the two nations since Canada defeated Costa Rica in February 2016 at the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament, securing Canada a spot at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Canada last played in Winnipeg in 2014 against the USA resulting in a 1:1 draw. Kadeisha Buchanan gave the 28,255 fans on hand something to cheer about as she opened the scoring in the first half, but the Americans tied the game with fifteen minutes to go to draw 1:1. At the time, the attendance in Winnipeg was the second highest for a Canadian ‘A’ level women’s international played in Canada.

Toronto fans last saw Canada in action against Brazil as part of the Road to Rio series in June 2016 as Canada prepared for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Canada fell to Brazil in that match 0:2 but came back and defeated them 1:0 in Ottawa three days later, and then 2:1 when it mattered most in the Bronze Medal Match of the Rio Olympic Games.
