Aarts, Martin

Martin was born in 1932 and came to Chatham from his native Holland in 1958. Having played his favoured game until departing for Canada, he turned away from the sport for 17 years. In 1975 he became involved with a group of men eager to start a youth soccer association. From the beginning of 4 teams and 60 players, it has grown to close to 200 teams and over 2500 boys, girls, and adults. At some point over the last 38 years, Martin has done every job, co-founder, director, coach, referee, maintenance, and administrator for the Chatham Youth Soccer Association. In addition he has been involved regionally and provincially at the administrative level.
