Whitecaps Residency - PDL - Premier Development League
With a win and tie in their last two games, the Whitecaps Residency squad is looking to keep their positive run going when they host little known Ogden Outlaws. Ogden comes into the match with a win and two losses in their last three matches. Losing 1-0 to Tacoma Tide, 2-0 to BYU Cougars, and winning 2-1 over Yakima Reds has shown the Ogden side to be a competitive opponent in all their matches. Whitecaps head coach Thomas Niendorf takes the young 'Caps into the match with a 4-1-1 record in their first six matches of the PDL season. Kyle Porter leads the Whitecaps in scoring with eight points (four goals) in six games played.

Whitecaps Prospects – PCSL - Pacific Coast Soccer League
With a string of four matches to finish the month of June, the Prospects Men will be without head coach Bart Choufour for three matches, as he is off complete his A Coaching License in Toronto, Ontario. The 'Caps will be led by assistant coaches Hubert Busby jr and Les Krivak. The Whitecaps are coming off a 1-1 draw against a tough Vancouver Thunderbirds squad Thursday evening. The Prospects follow up with an away match to PSSA Rapids in Bellingham, Washington, on Saturday evening.
After suffering a 4-2 loss two nights ago to arch-rival Tri-Cities Extreme, the Women’s PCSL teams meet again June 20, with the Friday night encounter at Charles Best Secondary School in Coquitlam, BC. The Extreme are three points behind the Whitecaps Prospects in the standings, with three games in hand. 'Caps striker Alicia Tesan sits third in league scoring, with eight goals on the season.

Whitecaps and BCSA WFC affiliates - Super Y-League
With Surrey WFC having a relatively light June schedule compared to the other WFC affiliate clubs, all four Surrey teams return to action when they are away to Mountain WFC at SFU on June 21. The brightest light so far for Surrey has been the U-14 Boys team, who sit in third place in the Pacific Northwest division with a 4-1-2 record, just five points back from the first-place Abbotsford Mariners, with two games in hand.
After a busy few weekends, Coastal WFC has a lighter slate of matches with only one game each for seven of their teams this weekend. The U-13 and U-14 Boys play host to the West Coast Capitals on Saturday, while the U-13/U-15/U-16 Girls and U-15/U-16 Boys all visit Yakima Reds in Washington State on Sunday. The Coastal U-13 Girls lead Group B with a 3-1-1 record, and will have an interesting match-up against Group A leaders Yakima, owners of a 5-1-1 record. Coastal's U-15 and U-16 Girls look to remain undefeated, as both lead their respective divisions.
Mountain WFC is the busiest of WFC clubs this coming weekend, with 11 matches in total to be played. On Saturday, four teams including the U-13 and U-14 Boys and Girls host Surrey WFC at SFU. On Sunday, all Mountain WFC teams - with the exception of the U-15 Girls - are in action against visiting Thompson Okanagan at Hugh Boyd in Richmond, BC.
