2nd Annual Tulis Alumni Game A Success!

The 17th of June was pegged by weather forecasters as a chance for Vancouver to showcase its infamous west coast hospitality in the form of liquid sunshine. However, Roman Sr. was clearly smiling alongside his alumni as the sunshine beat out the clouds in the first of many spectacular feats on the day. Perhaps only slightly more spectacular was the smell surrounding the training field, as instead of sweat and tears, the sweet aroma of European sausages greeted parents, players, and spectators alike as they made the time-honored trek to the Tulis facility. While Friday afternoon traffic held up the proceedings somewhat, it was clear as the Alumni warmed up that they were ready to shift to the heavy gears in memory of their beloved coach. Such was Roman's kindness and charisma that hundreds showed up to celebrate the things that he valued most: family, charity, and - of course - soccer. With the BCCCPA on site to accept donations in support of families burdened by the stresses and financial woes of childhood cancer, games and contests for children young and old, and a fantastic evening of soccer ahead, Roman's cleat prints were hard to miss while walking the venue.

2011 Annual Report

This 2011 European tour stated once more in the crowded mess that is YVR. As in previous years, 15 families came together, many for the first time. This would start a trip that would take nearly a full 24 hours to reach their destination and take 15 boys halfway across the world from the great white north to two tournaments in Scandinavia. Players, parents and coaches alike would spend the next 2 weeks together in a manner similar to many reality television shows. However, in this case there was no guarantee that anyone would walk away with a prize.

2010 Alumni Games

June 2010 - The first annual Roman Tulis Memorial Alumni Game could not have asked for better conditions. The sun was shining, the temperature was ideal and over 150 people where on hand to take in the game. Throughout the years, many young boys and girls have been a part of the Roman Tulis Soccer school, and on this day over 30 of them returned as adults to pay homage to a coach that touched all their lives, with more players on the sideline due to injury.

2010 Annual Report

It is said that the most special people need less time to do much good on earth before they are taken away and this sentiment most certainly applies to Roman Tulis. Throughout life, all of us will lose loved ones; in this case we have lost the man that brought us all together. However, now that he is gone, it is the school and his teachings that will keep us together. This last year has been a difficult one for the Tulis school and the Tulis family. We lost the founder and heart of the Roman Tulis European Soccer School of Excellence, we lost a great coach, we lost a wonderful father and a caring husband, but most of all, we lost a great friend.

2010 Scandinavia Girls

There is a saying in the football world that sums up the beauty and ugliness of the game very succinctly: “That’s football”. This year, the 1997 girls’ team went to the Dana Cup in Fredrikshavn, Denmark and the Gothia Cup in Gothenburg, Sweden and they were educated in the true meaning of this footballing proverb. The girls started their trip with the usual 20-some-odd hour journey from Vancouver to Fredrikshavn and were greeted 15 hours after their arrival by the Swedish club Vasalunds IF. Tulis’ girls scored late in the first half and weathered the opposition’s attempts to level the score for an important 1-0 victory to open the tournament. Following a 12-0 win against IL Eiger of Norway, the Tulis Girls were on top of their group requiring only a draw in their final game to ensure that they won the pool.

2009 Annual Report

From the Burnaby-based Roman Tulis European Soccer School of Excellence, players have gone around the world to fly across fields, flash the Canadian colours on foreign soil and make their mark. But it is Tulis’s latest export, a tall, strong player named Niall Cousens that has the Czechoslovakia-born coach awash with pride and reflecting on a career of growing European-style soccer players on Canadian soil. “It’s very difficult to get a Canadian kid into any serious soccer country because we are not considered a soccer nation,” explained Tulis, 54, during an interview in the Coquitlam home he shares with his wife, Danka.

2009 Scandinavia Boys

This year’s European tour to Denmark and Sweden was nothing but a huge success for the U13 boys. At the Dana Cup Tournament in Denmark, they finished 1st in their group stage with 7 points (2 wins and a tie) scoring 11 goals and not conceding any. This was the second-ever Dana Cup championship for the Tulis boys groups. Going in to the “A” playoff matches, their 1st big task was in the quarter finals against Orgryte IS, 3rd largest professional club from Sweden. The Tulis boys played with a lot of heart and determination and scored on a free kick 25 yards from the net with only 3 minutes left in the 2nd extra time to win the game 1-0 and move on to the semi finals.
