For the first time ever

Whitecaps academy players face each other

For the first time ever, the Whitecaps squads have the opportunity to square off against each other in Cranbrook on Sunday, October 5.

It’s only been one year since the Whitecaps introduced their unique brand of soccer coaching to the Kootenays, and already there are 250 prospect players from Nelson, Cranbrook, Castlegar, Grand Forks, Christina Lake, Fernie, Kimberley and Invermere.

And now, for the first time ever, the Whitecaps squads have the opportunity to square off against each other in Cranbrook at Moir Park on Sunday, October 5.

“We are honoured to be in this position in the Kootenays. To be able to test and push our talented players is something we are very proud of,” said Brett Adams, Kootenay regional head coach.

“This day is a message about where we aim to take soccer in the Kootenays.”

Adams said he’s thrilled at the progress the organization has made.

“In one year we really feel like we are out in the community and helping to grow the game.”

The games will feature U10-18 boys and girls teams.

“We want to give the players every chance of reaching their potential. By putting on games like this we believe that this can help achieve that,” said Adams.
