BC Soccer and the EA Sports BC Soccer Premier League have been building stronger partnerships with Canada Soccer and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC and these changes to the High Performance Programming will assist in creating a clearer player pathway in BC that connects all of these organizations. BC Soccer's HPP is scheduled around the BCSPL with the 2016 program allowing for better collaboration with the EA Sports BCSPL Technical Directors and Coaches for player assessments and overall improved player development.  The program will also create more opportunities for EA Sports BCSPL players and will give them the best possible environment for player identification by Canada Soccer and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

The BC Soccer High Performance Program also offers a great opportunity for the EA Sports BCSPL Coaches to be identified and invited to be a part of the program. This identification helps coaches along the coaching pathway while also offering additional coaching opportunities for those in the High performance stream.

The 2016 BC Soccer High Performance Programming will be for 2001/2002/2003/2004 born players. The 2004 age group will involve 36 male and 36 female players with the 2001/2002/2002 programs consisting of 18 male and 18 female players per age group.

The BC Soccer High Performance Program consist of 2-3 age specific programming camps held at various times throughout the year where players are specifically invited to participate based on recommendations from BC Soccer development staff, Whitecaps FC coaching staff, BC REX coaching staff and the technical directors from within the BCSPL franchise clubs.  In addition to the camps, throughout the year, BC Soccer is also pleased to facilitate various identification matches with selected players.
