Hannah and Caisa Heyes

Posted on : November 18, 2013 |



The left side of the field is double trouble for opponents of Cowichan’s U18 girls’ soccer squad, with twins Hannah and Caisa Heyes patrolling their respective left defence and left forward positions.

The Grade 12 Frances Kelsey Secondary students, who live in Shawnigan Lake, have been inseparable on soccer teams since they first started playing in kindergarten at five years old.

“We play really well together,’’ said Caisa. “Sometimes I don’t really think of her as I’m playing soccer with my sister. I don’t really think of it as everyone else does. Everyone else thinks it’s kind of weird — sisters, same age, same year, same grade. But it just seems normal to us.’’

“We both have a really big bond,’’ Hannah said. “We can read each other and what we’re doing.’’

There are advantages to being a sister act and having parents Bob and Carina as coaches.

““We get little insider tips so we know what’s going to happen at each practice,’’ said Caisa.

“We can give advice to our parents, too, because we’re on the field and they can’t see everything that’s going on and we can,’’ said Hannah.
