From November 1 to 5, players from Whitecaps FC BMO Academy Centres across the country will gather in Vancouver for the MLS Academy Integration Camp.
This event offers selected players from the Whitecaps BMO Academy System a one-week experience within the Vancouver MLS Academy program.
The 2023 MLS Academy Integration Camp will feature 19 boys born in 2008, selected from Whitecaps FC BMO Academy Centres nationwide. This is a valuable opportunity for them to showcase their skills to Whitecaps FC MLS Academy head coaches and advance within the Whitecaps FC BMO Academy System.
"This is a great opportunity for the top 2008 prospects to train with our MLS Academy coaches and test themselves against the current MLS Academy players," said Mike Ayyash, technical director of Whitecaps FC BMO Academy Centres. "It is a valuable development experience for the players and a chance for our staff to scout them for future MLS Academy intakes."
The program includes training sessions and 11v11 match play, all taking place at the Whitecaps FC National Soccer Development Centre (NSDC), situated on the UBC campus.
