The soccer academy has enjoyed a successful second year! We have five weeks left and the coaching staff is very pleased with the progress of all our players.
We’ve really emphasized receiving the ball, passing, and thinking the game over the past two months and that will continue to be a focus for the rest of the year. In addition we plan do a lot more speed and conditioning work now that most players are in their off-season.
On Wednesday May 18th we will be traveling to UBC to watch a Whitecaps practice. I think it will be a good opportunity for the students to watch the training habits of professional soccer players. In addition the head coach of the UBC men’s soccer team, Mike Mosher, will be talking to the kids about what it takes to be a successful student/athlete. Lastly, we will have a scrimmage against the West Van soccer academy. I’m looking forward to the day as I think the students will learn what it takes to play at a higher level.
If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me school or by email.
