Players, coaches and parents will soon have their first opportunity to learn about the 2013 Spring Soccer Academy being run by Shel Brodsgaard in the Comox Valley.

An informational evening is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 21 at the Old House Village Hotel & Spa in Courtenay.  The program is for youth soccer players from the ages of 10 to 16 years and will run for a total of 12 weeks starting the first week of April and concluding the first week of July.

Brodsgaard, an experienced professional soccer player and national team coach, notes a detailed description of the academy programs is currently provided on the blog located at

The Jan. 21 evening in Courtenay will feature two sessions:

• 5:30-7 p.m. Players, parents and coaches for ages 10, 11, 12 years;

• 7-8:30 p.m. Players, parents and coaches for ages 13-16 years.

“The aim for these informational meetings is to review the academy model being created and address all concerns regarding CVUSC House and Rep soccer, defining and explaining the age groups, outlining the skill-based model for assessment of the players, as well as address the program content and goals,” said Brodsgaard.

“It is my goal to form the following groups for the 2013 Spring Academy:

“Group One: U13, U14, U15 age groups. Please note, U13 participation determined with a skill-based assessment.

“Group Two: U13, U12 and U11 players. Please note, U12 and U11 participation determined with a skill-based assessment.

“Group Three (if needed): U12, U11, U10 players. This program will be offered based on interest or demand and the program will be modified to meet the needs of the respective participants (for example, training only with no games; allowing the kids to play house soccer).”
