An informational evening for all players and parents interested in the 2015 Vancouver Island Soccer Academy Spring Soccer Programs being run by Shel Brodsgaard and staff in the Comox Valley will be held Feb. 22 from 6-8 p.m. at the Old House Village Hotel & Spa.

In an effort to bring together interested players, families and coaches we have arranged the following information meetings:

The aim of these informational meetings is to review the academy model being created and address all concerns regarding CVUSC House/Rep soccer and VIPL commitments. At this time we will be 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.

Our goal will be to form the following groups for the 2015 Spring Academy:
