BC Soccer's Provincial Program Identification Weekend

BC Soccer hosted its 2nd annual Provincial Program Identification Weekend at Gates Park in Port Coquitlam from May 17th to 19th. 

Identified players from organizations across the Province and players from the BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL) who are in Grade 10 (2008 born), Grade 11 (2007 born), or Grade 12 (2006 Born) were invited to this identification opportunity for University/College, Semi-Professional, and Professional levels of play. With games taking place on Saturday and Sunday, individuals had the opportunity to play two matches over the weekend.  

"Overall, we are happy with how the weekend went," said Luca Dalla Pace, Player Development Senior Coordinator. "Having staff present from Universities/Colleges, L1BC Clubs, CPL Clubs, National Development Centers, and MLS Academies, displays BC Soccer's commitment to identifying, showcasing, and developing young soccer talent in British Columbia. By providing players with the opportunity to play in front of these opportunities, we are hoping to help players move up the pathway into higher levels of play.” 

This weekend also served as part of the overall Provincial Program identification, including additional Identification Matches and BCSPL Match Observations throughout each phase of play.
