Dundeewealth Little Chips Backyard Drills™ Caravan Will Cross The Country This Summer Offering Coaching Tips And A Chance To Win A $10,000 Resp Certificate

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, May 21, 2008 – This summer, soccer parents have a chance to win a $10,000 Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) Certificate and enhance their families’ soccer skills through DundeeWealth’s national Little Chips Soccer Program.

Canadians from coast-to-coast can enter the RESP contest online at www.littlechipssoccer.com, and at DundeeWealth’s free Backyard DrillsTM Caravan events taking place in cities across Canada. In addition to the $10,000 RESP Grand Prize, three regional runner-up RESP certificates valued at $1,000 each will be awarded. Families who attend the Caravan events will also be eligible to win a variety of prizes from UMBRO, a brand leader in the world of soccer.

This year, the Backyard Drills™ Caravan is scheduled to make a 20-city tour across Canada. DundeeWealth Little Chips’ team of coaches certified by the Ontario Soccer Association will be at the events to demonstrate the Backyard Drills™ to soccer families of all skill levels. Parents and kids can also enjoy free soccer giveaways and pick up a complimentary copy of the Little Chips Soccer Magazine – filled with coaching tips, games for the kids, game day recipes, and more. Full contest details and the Backyard DrillsTM Caravan schedule are available at www.littlechipssoccer.com

This year’s Little Chips Soccer Program also features a ParentCoach program designed for new coaches at the youth houseleague level and parents with little to no soccer experience. Free ParentCoach kits are available at www.littlechipssoccer.com and can be picked up at any of the Backyard Drills™ Caravan events. The kits include a 12-week coaching program, an UMBRO clipboard, and player activity books.

“Parents are always looking for ways to invest in their children – the Little Chips Soccer Program provides an opportunity for parents to enjoy quality time with their kids, encourage a healthy lifestyle, and get a head start at saving for their future,” said Paul Habert, Vice President of Advisor Relations, DundeeWealth, a division of DundeeWealth Inc. “ DundeeWealth is committed to supporting programs that build happy and healthy homes.”

For those families unable to participate in the Backyard Drills™ Caravan tour events, the Little Chips Soccer website (www.littlechipssoccer.com) and the Little Chips Soccer Magazine also provide general community soccer information, activities, nutritional tips and more.
