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.
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 –

Futsal was the name of the game last weekend for our boys Development Teams, as we travelled to Vernon to play in a series of matches with EFS
A great day of goals galore was enjoyed by all….thank you to our friends at EFS for hosting us
Watch out for more futsal action ahead as we roll into our Winter training phase. Apart from being lots of fun, futsal is also a perfect development tool for playing soccer the Soccaskool way !
We sent all six of our Development Teams to compete in the SX International Cup in Surrey last week, and enjoyed a fantastic weekend of great soccer in the blistering heat !
Each of our teams were entered at the highest level of play in the tournament Development Divisions. Our U10, U11 and U12 boys are old hands at this, and knew exactly what to expect from the event. Our other three teams, U9 boys and U11, U12 girls, were new to this level of play and gained some invaluable experience.
All of our teams performed well and represented our academy superbly both on and off the field
Thank you to the tournament hosts for staging a great competition, and to our parents for their fantastic support, and to our players for their tremendous efforts and we will most certainly look to repeat again next year.
This past week saw Soccaskool wrap up a busy summer academy program with a couple of great events.
The Summer Academy was an eight week summer program consisting of twice a week training for regular academy players and three times a week training for those players who have been named on one of our six new Development Teams. The summer academy was attended by well over 100 players, making it our biggest summer phase to date.
We introduced our ‘Summer Sixes’ which was a six a side league program which ran throughout the summer. Our thinking behind this was to include a match-play component to the program for regular academy players as well as Development Team players. We ran a U9/10 league and also a U11/12 league. As the summer progressed, so did the excitement and especially the level of play, which made it a great success from the coaches perspective.
