Introducing Okanagan FC

Soccaskool’s Development Team Program has grown and evolved into Okanagan FC, Kelowna’s newest soccer club.

We will continue to field Boys and Girls Development Teams every year from U9 to U12. This program has been running very successfully since 2016. Our Development Teams compete in the  BC Academy Super League (BCASL) Tryouts for our 2018-19 teams will be held in June.

We will soon field Boys and Girls Youth Teams every year from U13 to U18. This program will be introduced this year with the creation of our first Youth Teams. Boys and Girls U13 and U14 tryouts will be held in June.

We will also be introducing a Mens and a Women’s Senior Team this year, playing at the highest level possible. In 2018 our Mens Team will compete in the Kelowna Mens League. In 2019, we will add an equivalent Women’s Senior Team.

Our vision is that of a “cradle to grave” soccer club with a family feel to it, and a reputation for excellence.

Soccaskool Graduates invited to BC Soccer’s High Performance Programming

Soccaskool graduates Braden (left) and Kai (right) both performed well during recent BC High-PerformanceProgram (HPP) matches. Both players were pleased with their performances and will be hoping to be in the running for a place on the final roster when it is announced later this year.

At Soccaskool, our goal is to help individual players to develop and to play at the highest level that they can. This is why we encourage all of our graduating U12 players to try out for Thompson Okanagan FC, who play in the BC Soccer Premier League. From there, the best of them hope to get a chance with the Provinces High Performance Program Team, like the boys here. After that, the Whitecaps Residency Program becomes a real possibility, and with it the chance of a professional career in the game.

Last year, we were very proud to place 8 graduating players onto the TOFC U13 roster and now 2 of those have been recognised as  players of distinction and invited to participate at the next level!Congratulations Kai and Braden !

Soccaskool Girls Program Update

Ever since our Academy began in 2012, there has always been girls in our program. We have seen some outstanding girls come through our program and we like to think that we have played an important part in their soccer development. However, girls were always in the minority.

When we began our development team program a few years ago, it was exclusive to boys teams from U9 to U12. The best of our female players were however able to join our boys teams and we still currently have a couple of exceptional girls on boys development teams.

Ava is a key player for our U11 boys team and plays with incredible maturity and Sophia has built a reputation as a very technically strong player both locally and in The Lower Mainland, with her excellent performances on our U12 Boys team !

Last summer we decided to offer enhanced programs for our girls. We opened a girls only academy class, with a plan to create our first Girls Development Team at U11.

Instantly our girls only academy class filled up and our development team tryout numbers were so positive that we created not one, but two girls teams, one at U11 as well as a U12 team. These teams have since bonded extremely well and consistently work hard on improving their overall game with great enthusiasm.

Although we are only halfway through the 12 month development team program it is more than fair to say that we are witnessing remarkable improvement in the girls technical ability, game play, understanding and recent games bare little resemblance to the teams opening games.

As a demonstration of our recent successes with our girls programming, our Winter 2018 Girls class was the first academy class to be fully subscribed and we now have a growing wait list as more and more girls look to join Soccaskool.

Watch out for our Girls in 2018 !
