The 2016 BC Soccer High Performance Program Kicks Off in January

BC Soccer's High Performance January Program Dates

Vancouver BC, November 19, 2015 – BC Soccer’s 2016 High Performance Program which is designed to better support the EA Sports BCSPL along with Whitecaps Residency and Whitecaps FC in partnership with BC Soccer Rex Programing, will begin its first project in January, 2016. The program will continue to provide a platform for high-performance youth players to be assessed by both those of Whitecaps FC and Canada Soccer programs.

 BC Soccer and the EA Sports BC Soccer Premier League have been building stronger partnerships with Canada Soccer and Vancouver Whitecaps FC and these changes to the High Performance Programming will help create a clearer player pathway that connects all of these organizations. The programming is scheduled around the BCSPL and the 2016 program will allow for better collaboration with the EA Sports BCSPL Technical Directors and Coaches for assessments and overall 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. More information on how the program has evolved can be found HERE

The 2016 BC Soccer High Performance Programming will be for 2000/2001/2002 born players with a separate intake for 2003 born players.  The 2003 intake players will go through a two day program that will involve 36 male and 36 female players with the 2000/2001/2002 programs consisting of four days and 18 male and 24 female players (per age group).
