Where are they now ?
At Soccaskool we take great pride in seeing our players developing during their time with us and we are extremely proud of the many players who have graduated from our program and continue their soccer development in high level soccer streams. Here is our original 20 players who took a chance with our academy when we first started, a little more than 3 years ago. Some of them continue to be an important part of the Soccaskool program and we look forward to observing their continuing progress. For the others who have since graduated and continue their soccer development in high level soccer streams we wish them the very best and continued success.

Our Development Teams were both in action this weekend as we took the road trip to Vernon for a couple of great matches at the Vantage One Indoor Soccer Arena.
Our U10s played first in a match up with a U11 Vernon boys team. Our team enjoyed large spells of possession right from the start of the game. Our players showed their quality as we passed the ball confidently around the field and began to create goalscoring opportunities. The first one came from Sam from the edge of the box, and further goals from Luca and Callum meant that we edged the match 3-2 against a stubborn opponent. Man of the match was Axl, in his new centre midfield position.

This Thanks Giving we travelled to Richmond to take part in the Richmond Boys Club Thanksgiving Festival. Our boys U10, U11 and U12 Development Teams were all entered into the event, and we were provided with some excellent soccer, despite the rain ! The tournament was very well organized, played on beautiful, brand new artificial turf pitches….thank you to our friends in Richmond for hosting the weekend.
Our U10s found it very difficult to compete with coastal U11 opponents at the Gold level, but nevertheless enjoyed the weekend and put in a great effort. Continue reading Thanks Giving Tournament
