Vancouver Whitecaps FC are pleased to announce that former Canadian women's national team player and 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Candace Chapman will take part in the club's 2016 Girls Residential camp. The camp takes place from August 5 to 8 at the Fortius Sport & Health facilities in Burnaby, BC.
With the 2016 Olympics on the horizon, Chapman - who is currently an assistant coach with Canada's U-17 women's national team - will bring her experience as she helps guide the next generation of young players. During the camp, the group will go through analysis of the current Women's Olympic tournament in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"I'm excited to be part of the Residential camp this year," said Chapman. "The program offers an elite experience that highlights the women’s national team environment both technically and tactically. It should be a fun four days with the added bonus of watching Canada kick off their Olympic journey."
Those attending will be led by Whitecaps FC Girls Elite REX head coach Emma Humphries and assistant coach Natalie Lawrence. The camp will feature a full professional environment with four days of training, including three nights accomodation at Fortius Sport & Health and all meals.
