(March 8, 2018) The 2018 Whitecaps FC Academy Centre Combine gets underway in Minoru Park, Richmond, BC, this weekend – running from March 10-16. Alberta Soccer is sending its U13 & U14 Boys and Girls (North and South) Provincial teams to participate alongside other teams from BC, Manitoba, Saskatchewan (who will also have Alberta players on the roster), Nova Scotia, Newfoundland/PEI, and Ontario.
The intent of the combine is threefold:
- It provides the unique opportunity for players to compete against similarly skilled teams from across the country
- It creates player identification opportunities for the Whitecaps staff for entry into Residency and Girl’s Elite REX Programs
- It educates attendees on the Vancouver Whitecaps systems and development philosophy for both the Residency and Girl’s Elite REX Programs
Stay tuned as we post more about Alberta Soccer’s teams and their experiences during the combine…
