Soccaskool Girls Program Update

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 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.

Boys development teams enjoy Futsal outing

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 !

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.
