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 !

Development Teams attract Sponsors

We are very pleased to announce our first partnerships with local companies to sponsor our Development Teams

Kimco, a Kelowna based specialist in HVAC, Automation, and Controls has sponsored our continually improving U12 Girls team with a tracksuit and backpack deal that will see our girls looking very sharp indeed in the new year.

D.R.Robertson Injury Law, a Vernon based Injury Law firm, will be sponsoring our excellent U10 Boys with a kit deal that will see them as the first boy’s team to convert to the new sky blue strip

Both firms will be featured on the development team pages on this website and will also feature on the team pages of our new Development Teams website currently being developed.

Thank you to both these companies for their generous sponsorships, and welcome to our Soccaskool Family!

Winter Academy Registration Now Open

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 –

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 !

Soccaskool Teams Enjoy the Sunshine at the SX Cup

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.
