Summer Programs prove to be a Great Success

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.

The final day was staged at The Quarry in The Upper Mission were teams battled for the Soccaskool Cup with all the players performing to a high standard in some exciting and very competitive final round games.

On Saturday our Development Teams wrapped up our SX Cup preparation by hosting European Football School, from Vernon.  Each of our six teams played a morning and an afternoon match against their Vernon counterparts, in what turned out to be an excellent day of soccer

Honours were even on the girls side, with a win and a loss for both our U11 and our U12 teams. These were our first ever competitive matches with these teams, and we were very pleased with their overall performances. We have definitely made progress with the girls over the summer and we think we are ready for whatever the SX Cup has to throw at us

Our younger boys teams dominated their opponents and secured comfortable wins at both U9 and U10. These teams should now be really looking forward to next weeks challenge.

Our U11 boys team performed very well and secured two impressive victories over a Vernon team who were older, bigger and stronger. This team is shaping up very well and played some very nice soccer.

Our senior U12 team had two excellent games against a very strong U13 EFS team. A 1-1 tie in the first game was followed up by a very exciting 1-0 win with the win secured with virtually the last kick of the ball in the second game.

Overall our Summer Academy & Summer Camps proved to be a great success and certainly a lot of fun.  We now have a week’s break before the start of the Fall Academy.  Our Classes are filling up very quickly and we are excited to see many returning players and of course look forward to meeting and working with the many new players that have registered.

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 !
