Soccaskool is pleased to announce details of this years Spring Break Camps. Our Camps will be held on Monday March 19th to Friday March 23rd at the Capital News Center, Gordon Drive
Camp # 1 – 9.00am to 11.00am Boys and Girls from U6(2012) to U10(2008)
This camp will be full of soccer fun, games and scrimmages, with competitions and drills that concentrate on improving basic ball control and soccer technique. The sessions will be lively and varied as we create a learning experience within a fun, yet challenging, environment.
Camp # 2 – 1.00pm to 3.00pm Boys and Girls from U11(2007) to U14(2004)
This camp will be very busy and lively as we challenge the players to improve every aspect of their game over the course of the week. The camp will be quite demanding on the players and will be the perfect way to kick off the Spring soccer season for players of all abilities and levels who wish to be as good as they can be on the field this year !
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 !
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 !
We are very pleased to announce our first partnerships with local companies to sponsor our Development Teams
Kimco, a Kelowna based specialist in HVAC, Automation, and Controls has sponsored our continually improving U12 Girls team with a tracksuit and backpack deal that will see our girls looking very sharp indeed in the new year.
D.R.Robertson Injury Law, a Vernon based Injury Law firm, will be sponsoring our excellent U10 Boys with a kit deal that will see them as the first boy’s team to convert to the new sky blue strip
Both firms will be featured on the development team pages on this website and will also feature on the team pages of our new Development Teams website currently being developed.
Thank you to both these companies for their generous sponsorships, and welcome to our Soccaskool Family!
More details on sponsorships can be found on the sponsorship page
We are pleased to announce that our Winter Academy Registration is now OPEN.
The Winter Academy will run from Jan 2nd until March 23rd. This is a 3 month / 12 week program & commitment.
We would like to highlight that our program continues to grow in popularity and spaces on the academy are in high demand. Our number of players for the Winter phase unlike Spring & Summer are limited by the fact that we move indoors and we restrict our class sizes in order to maintain our quality.
Please review and register your child in the correct class. If you have any questions in regards to classes please email us.
The classes are as follows –
