Everything is progressing nicely for the Vancouver Island Soccer Academy, introduced by Shel Brodsgaard in the Comox Valley this spring.

The first meeting back in January was attended by almost 100 players and families and the next meeting has been arranged for Wednesday, March 6 for ages U10-U11-U12 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and for ages U13-U16 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

“This meeting will serve to follow-up with any of the families/participants regarding questions about the academy and formally initiate the registration process,” Brodsgaard said. “It is also at this time that we will officially announce the academy name and logo.”

Brodsgaard said he is working on the academy’s first event in the Comox Valley that will see it host several teams on Denman Island for a tournament April 27-28.

There will be six teams in total playing in this two-day event; three teams from the U11 age group and three teams from the U13 age group. The Vancouver Island Soccer Academy will field one team in each age group, plus there will be one team in each age group from the Prospect Lake Development Program run by Mark Bell, with the third team in each group to be determined.
