Bryce Marinus Earns Provincial Team Spot For CSA National Championships




Local soccer athlete Bryce Marinus has made the final phase of selections for the 2012 Provincial Teams Program.

Marinus has been selected to play for Team BC at the CSA National Championships (All-Stars) in Newfoundland and Labrador this summer, July 14-21. He is currently training in Vancouver then travelling to Seattle for the Sounders Cup followed by more training and then on to the Nationals.

BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL) U16 Boys Vancouver Island Wave head coach Larry Stefanek says, “Bryce is a technically gifted player that has worked tremendously hard to achieve his goal of making the BC Provincial team.  He has shown great dedication and commitment to our BCSPL team and to the provincial program and we wish him the best of luck this summer with the team.”

Marinus’ last year with CVUSC was with the U14 Red Devils coached by Gary DeWitt and Ian Maclean in the 2009/2010 season. He then moved on to the U16 A Metro team in Nanaimo and this year the U16 HPL team.

As a student at Highland Secondary, he played for the school’s junior soccer team and with their senior soccer team during playoffs. His position is left mid and he has had extra training with Kelsey Tufnail for speed and agility.

Marinus is an excellent student and played volleyball and basketball this year for Highland when he could. “Bryce loves the sport of soccer and is excited and proud to represent B.C. at the Nationals,” a CVUSC spokesperson said. “Comox Valley United Soccer Club extends their congratulations. Way to go Bryce!”
