Fall Academy Registration is Now Open

We are pleased to announce that Registration is NOW OPEN for the Soccaskool Junior Academy Fall phase, which runs from September 5th until Christmas. This is a 4 month / 16 week program & commitment.
 
The Academy will be held outdoors on one of the Mission Fields until the middle of October. Then we will move indoors to the Capital News Centre for the remainder of the phase.
 
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 Fall 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.

Regular Junior Academy Program Cost is $500.00  – 4 month program.
U13+ Supplementary Training Academy Program Cost is $300.00 – 4 month program.

  • Fees can be paid monthly
  • New players to the academy require an academy uniform. The additional cost of this is $80.00.

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 Tournament a Great Success

The Okanagan Sun shone brightly for us last weekend as Soccaskool hosted their first ever tournament event at Kelowna City Park.

The tournament was in jamboree format for boys teams in the U9, U10, U11 & U12 Development divisions and we were delighted to welcome academy teams from The Lower Mainland, Victoria, Nanaimo, Vernon & Kamloops. City Park in the sunshine proved to be an excellent venue and we had large crowds come out to watch some excellent soccer.

Our Soccaskool Development Teams, as always, did us proud and competed extremely well playing an attractive brand of soccer and all our games were close and exciting.

Our U9s were unbeaten for the entire year going into the weekend, and once again produced some excellent performances and results but were undone by a fantastic FC Barcelona Escola U9 Academy team which we actually didn’t mind too much as it gives us a higher bar to strive towards ! Congratulations to Barca

Similar story to our U10s, who had an up and down weekend. They produced an excellent battling performance against an older Supra team to come from 2-0 down to tie the match at 2-2 but later under performed against a strong Western Canada Rush team.  Again, we will take the opportunity to learn from this match and continue to encourage our players to understand the importance of pre game preparation. Congratulation to Western Canada Rush !

Our U11s were their usual consistent selves and, despite being low on squad numbers for the weekend, dominated the ball in every match and produced the inevitable results !

Our U12s had the toughest challenge of the weekend, which is how we wanted it to be. Playing against older opponents on the full field in 11 a side format was very difficult for them but they showed great character and determination to battle all weekend & produce some great soccer. This U12 squad is ready for BCSoccer Premier League tryouts !

Overall our tournament weekend proved to be a great success and we will certainly be looking to stage this event on an annual basis moving forward.

Thank you to all the parents for your help & support, to the visiting teams for supporting our tournament & most of all to the players for your efforts in producing some very exciting soccer !
