Development Teams attract Sponsors

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!

Soccaskool’s Girls Development Teams in North Shore Action.

Soccaskool’s U11 and U12 Girls Development Teams continued their Fall season

last weekend with a visit to The Lower Mainland to compete in The North Shore Soccer Club girls tournament.

Both of our teams were able to demonstrate the progress we have made so far with our new girls program. Our girls produced excellent performances and were able to record great results against strong opposition.

These teams have now been training 3 times a week since the beginning of July and their progress is clear to see. On Wednesday, we played the last of our early morning inter squad matches at Dilworth, which have been a lot of fun even if it is starting to get pretty chilly !

This weekend both teams will travel to Vernon to wrap up our outdoor phase with a couple of matches against EFS. This will take our number of competitive matches played so far with these teams to 14 each.

U11 Girls (2007/2008)

Our Development Team Program is well and truly established now, and is rapidly gaining a reputation across the entire Province of being one of the very best development programs available anywhere !

These teams train 3-4 times a week all year round with a full time, professional coach. We play in weekly inter squad training matches. We also travel around the Province and compete in a variety of events, leagues and tournaments resulting in around 30-35 competitive matches spread across the year against hand picked teams teams such as Calgary Blizzard, TSSFaly Soccer Academy, Western Canada Rush to name just a few to ensure competitive games against top quality opponents.

Our aim is to develop as many players as possible through the U9 to U12 years who are able to compete and play in The BC Soccer Premier League and beyond. This is the recognized pathway for the elite soccer player in British Columbia, leading to opportunities with the Provincial Program and with The Whitecaps Residency Program.

This year we are very excited to add our first ever girls team to our program.

Our Development Team tryouts are open to any players interested in becoming part of our academy program, not just those currently attending the Academy.  There is no cost to attend just register and show up at the field for Tryout #1 and be assessed.

Tryout #2 – will be by invite only. Successful players will need to attend both tryouts.  Under age players can try out with permission only (please contact us beforehand with your details)

Roster size of each squad will be 12 and we will only ever field one team at each age group.  In 2017/18 we will have 5 teams in total
If selected, we will ask you to commit to Soccaskool from July 2017 to July 2018.

Our younger players, U9 and U10 are able to participate in COYSA programs throughout the year if they wish to but our older players U11 and U12 are not.

Our existing teams are highly competitive and there is increased interest every year so it will not be easy to gain a spot on a Soccaskool Development Team but everybody who attends our tryouts will be fully and fairly assessed.

Come out and give it a go ! Get out your comfort zone it’s where the MAGIC Happens !
