Soccaskool graduate suits up for BC Soccer High Performance Program. 

At Soccaskool, we always maintain a keen interest in our graduate players as they look to progress through the player pathway. 

Annika, pictured here on the back row second from the left, was one of our original 20 players when we started the academy back in 2012. 

It was great to see her name on the Roster as well as in the starting line up for the BC Soccer High Performance Program against the Whitecaps Girls Elite Rex Program last night.

Congratulations Annika  !

Development Team Tryouts

It’s Development Teams tryout time !

Tryout #1 –  Sunday June 18th – 7pm to 9pm – Mission #15

U11 Boys (2007)
U12 Boys (2006)

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 !

Soccaskool Graduates join TOFC

Congratulations to Diego, Daxton and Grayson who have just become the first players to graduate from Soccaskool’s full time (Development Team) Program and try out for Thompson Okanagan Football Club. TOFC is a Regional Program, which draws the best players from across the Okanagan to play in the BC Soccer Premier League, and therefore enter the recognized High Performance Pathway in BC, leading to opportunities to compete for spots on the BC Provincial Team, Whitecaps Professional Residency Program, and ultimately,  Canadian National Team Programs.

These three players were the only 2004 born players on Soccaskool’s 2004/5 Development Team last year, and we were delighted to hear that they have all been selected to represent TOFC.

All three were named on the TOFC 2004 Intake roster, and will now go ahead and compete in the BCSPL U13 Intake season beginning in September. This brings the number of Soccaskool graduates playing for TOFC teams to ten (we also have one playing for Coquitlam Metro Ford BCSPL)

Next year will be the turn of our flagship 2005 players, and we will be hoping to double that number as we continue to demonstrate that our academy offers a viable alternative development pathway to the traditional TOYSL U11 and U12 Development Program.

Well done boys, and we will be following your progress with interest as you enter the U13 to U18 Youth Soccer years !
