BC Soccer Continues to Educate Coaches and Expand its Player Identification Network

Vancouver BC, March 21, 2014 - As part of its overall commitment to supporting the recognized pathway for potential high performance players in British Columbia, BC Soccer brought twelve technical designates / coaches to Vancouver which were put forward by club and districts in the areas of the Upper Vancouver Island, Far North, North Coast and the Kootneys for a three day High Performance (HP) education seminar.

The seminar focused on providing insight and information within the high performance stream of play in BC. It included discussions on the long term planning and communication process as it relates to the recognized structure of player development in BC and Canada, evaluation and player identification process, player assessment education and provided on the ground experience within the high performance training and match play environment through the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League.

“We feel very strongly the harmonization of the player development pathway and ability to extend our reach as it relates to player identification is key to the long term success of programming throughout the province“, said Roger Barnes, President of BC Soccer. “We believe activities such as this past weekend’s coach educational seminar will assist and aid us in helping meet these objectives”

“Coaches must be seen as key individuals within all the regions in BC and become strong assets in the promotion of the HP stream and scouting of potential high performance players for the appropriate environments such as the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League, BC Soccer Provincial Development Program, Vancouver Whitecaps FC Full time Academy and Elite Girls Program and ultimately the Canadian National Teams Program,” said Michael Findlay, Director of Soccer Development.

The participating coaches will now become part of a province-wide scouting network, able to identify, assess and provide guidance to aspiring high performance players, in coordination with BC Soccer staff coaches.  BC Soccer believes this seminar is a major step forward in providing opportunities to all players across BC.

“This weekend was extremely valuable for attendees as it provided access and firsthand experience of the high performance environment the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League provides” said Steve Hood Technical Directors of Prince George Youth Soccer Association. ”The on field observations both within training and match environment was very beneficial to display the high standards of coaching and the expectations of players within the high performance stream."
