Starting April 7, more than 100 local kids will have an opportunity to improve their soccer skills under expert supervision at the Vancouver Island Soccer Academy.

Players are looking forward to 12 weeks of high-quality training sessions and games coached by former Canadian national team coach Shel Brodsgaard, former World Cup striker Ken Garraway and former Canadian junior national team captain/Whitecaps player Jamie Fales.

Besides these top-notch head coaches, the academy has a number of enthusiastic and energetic assistant coaches on hand, not to forget the young mentor coaches who always bring their contagious energy to the field.

No need to say participants will be in good hands to be elevated to the next level of play in this skill-based program for all ages. It is no surprise that most of last year's participants are returning.

There is one last information meeting and sign-up opportunity Thursday, March 13 at 6 p.m. at the new tourism centre on the highway connector at 101-3607 Small Rd. in Cumberland.

For more information visit www.soccersoccersoccer.ca or contact Brodsgaard at sheldano@telus.net.
