The Technical Review provides stakeholders the opportunity to give feedback on the creation of the High Performance Program and League in British Columbia.

Vancouver BC May 13, 2014 – BC Soccer and the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL) are releasing the two year technical review of the BCSPL.  The review’s findings give an overview of advancements in player, coach, training and competition environments.  The review also touches on recommendations that relate to improvements within the high-performance stream of soccer in British Columbia. BC Soccer will be releasing an Administrative and Governance Review at a later time which is separate from this two year technical review.

“Managing one of Canada’s only standards-based youth high performance league is exciting and challenging,” said Matt Holbrook, General Manager of the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League. “We try to keep a constant focus on player-centric principles and development initiatives, and constantly work to ensure that BCSPL players have the ultimate environment to achieve their goals in the sport.  Having a strong review process ensures we all are accountable to the players at the end of the day.”

The review also focuses on the achievements that the various partners have had on the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League and on the High Performance stream within British Columbia.  These achievements include everything from the number graduating BCSPL players on to universities and Whitecaps FC Residency teams and Canadian National youth teams to the helping drive the minimum standard of coaching requirements that BCSPL Coaches must obtain.

“The establishment of standards based High Performance league’s across Canada are one of the key elements within the CSA’s strategic plan and will act as delivery vehicles within our recognized player pathway for HP players in Canada now and in the future,” says Tony Fonseca, Technical Director of the Canadian Soccer Association.

“This is the corner stone of high performance development in BC and Canada with an overall goal to focus and harmonize the development of players within a recognized and standards based high performance pathway,” said Michael Findlay, Director of Soccer Development BC Soccer.  

Some key findings and takeaways from the two year EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League technical review include:

• The professional training, leadership and essential HP influence on 1500+ male and female players annually within program and League platforms
• 95 players in 2012 - 2014 selected to Whitecaps FC Residency Program and Girls Elite Program

• 80+ players in 2013 graduating from league to continue education and playing with a university/college soccer program
