Academy Program


The BC United Academy represents the highest standard of play and dedication in BC United. In the U11-U14 Academy age groups, players are introduced to the habits, attitudes, and playing standards required to become an elite youth player. In the U15-U19 levels in the Academy, players are prepared technically, tactically, physically, and psychologically for successful playing careers in college and potentially beyond.

The BC United Academy Program is designed for the most talented and committed players to receive high-quality training in an environment where enthusiasm for and a commitment to the game is nurtured and rewarded.

The intention is to limit the number of participating players to approximately 36 players per age group. Players are offered the opportunity to accelerate their development by competing on a weekly basis in the highest appropriate CSA league and participate in various tournaments including showcases and State/Presidents Cup(s).
Because this program is specifically designed for the players with a high level of commitment to their soccer development, it requires a greater time and financial commitment than the typical Recreational or Competitive programs.

The BC United Academy Program maintains high standards for all coaches in the program, including licensing requirements, continuing professional development, and requisite years of experience coaching high-achieving players and teams.
