Parents and players invited to learn about what the program has to offer

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.

The program is available to youth soccer players from the ages of 2004-1998 (with the addition of 2005-2006 players based on an assessment provided within the first two weeks of the program). The start date will be Tuesday, April 14 and the end date is Thursday, June 18.

The midweek training will be located at Mark Isfeld and the weekend training sessions on Denman Island (Saturdays). Further to this will be additional training opportunities in both Victoria and the Comox Valley regarding the annual 7-Aside Weekends, plus prior to the conclusion of the program all players registered in the full academy will have the opportunity to spend a weekend on Denman Island.

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

Sunday, Feb. 22 Old House Village Hotel & Spa, 1730 Riverside Lane, 250-703-0202, from 6-8 p.m. for parents and players all ages (2004-1998). All interested players 2005-2006 born are also welcome to attend.

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:

Player Development Program (2004-2001 born players)


Player Development Program (2000-1998 born players)
