“All in”, is the message from Jai Virk as he joins the Providence Pilots. “I was interested the moment coach Joey contacted me. The more I learned about Providence and the soccer program, the more I was drawn to it.” Virk, from Brampton Ontario, looks forward to kicking off his Business Administration degree at Providence this fall.
When he is not playing soccer, Jai enjoys playing all sports. Much more than a highly competitive athlete, he is a person with empathy who sees a need and finds a way to help. Jai has dedicated time to volunteering at a local homeless shelter, as well as planning and setting up events at his high school for special needs kids.
Coach Passi sees a natural leader; “when you see Jai engage with people, you realize this. He is vocal, passionate, encouraging and he brings people together.” Beyond his leadership, “he is an aggressive player with tons of experience. He wins tackles, keeps possession and dominates his area of the field.”
Jai will be a fantastic contributor to the community, and we are all thrilled to welcome Jai to the Providence family and look forward to cheering on the Pilots this fall!
