 BC Soccer and the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League have been building stronger partnerships with Canada Soccer and Vancouver Whitecaps FC which has helped create a clearer player pathway for high performance players in British Columbia. This partnership and clearer player pathway led to nine players from the 2001 BC Soccer HPP age group and 15 HPP players in total moving on to play within Whitecaps FC Residency Program in 2014.  The BC Soccer HPP programming is scheduled around the BCSPL which allows coaches and players the best possible environment for player identification by Canada Soccer and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
