Upcoming Programs

Please keep your eyes on this webpage for our upcoming programs for 2016.  We are developing a program for the CSA's Long Term Player Development (LTPD)  Learning to Train stage for U8-U11 girls/ U9-U12 boys. 

The academy's Spring Session 2016 offers a great opportunity to club teams who wish to advance their soccer development in an outstanding soccer setting (Foote Field/Campus Saint Jean) during the months April-June.

The Spring Session will offer the opportunity for as many as 12 Feature Teams to take advantage of our professional program that seeks to deliver:

  • Highest level of coaching conducted by the academy's professional coaches including Len Vickery (CSA A License/Chartered Professional Coach), Kurt Bosch (CSA B License/ASA Provincial U-14 Boys Coach), Martin Andersen (MCoach candidate at the University of Alberta) and  Niki Vignjevic (CSA B License Coach).
  • Practices conducted at the University of Alberta's Foote Field (artificial turf) and Campus Saint Jean grass fields.
  • A program that adheres to the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) Long Term Player Development (LTPD) stages of development in providing age appropriate technical, physical, tactical and game mentality training.
  • Promotion of players to the higher levels including the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency Program, FC Edmonton, provincial, national and professional teams.
