Kitimat Youth Soccer

Kitimat Youth Soccer Association and Vancouver Whitecaps FC have partnered to provide youth players opportunities in Northwest, BC. 

Kitimat Youth Soccer Association (KYSA) will be running a club skills supplementary training program in the Spring of 2019 that will be led by Vancouver Whitecaps FC Northwest Academy head coach, Adam Glass. The supplementary training program will be open to all U5 to U18 players and is designed to provide all players with the opportunity to participate and improve in a high-quality learning environment. 

"For the Whitecaps, when we work within communities and with local clubs, the most important responsibility we have is really to take care of each individual as much as possible; to be a positive influence and help them grow and learn as a player and a person. By working with KYSA to help deliver their Spring programming, we hope to create an environment where every player feels welcome to participate; no matter what previous playing experience a player has, there will always be a place for them" - Adam Glass, Whitecaps FC Northern Academy Head Coach

The Whitecaps will also be establishing a regional Prospects Academy based out of Terrace that will serve as a training hub for the Northwest region. Players participating the KYSA spring programming along with players from other area's in the Northwest will be invited to participate in further training with the Whitecaps Prospects Program. As part of the Prospects program, players will have the opportunity to attend future High-Potential Player (HPP) events in Vancouver, as well as potentially tournaments with the prospects teams.
