Frequently Asked Questions:


1.  How many players are on an academy team?

Each team will have a roster with as many as twenty players who have completed the assessment process and have been placed in this program.  With a focus on team and player development, the goal is get each player to take his or her game to the next level and to prepare them for our competitive player stream.



2.  What are assessments?

Assessments, which take place in April, are an opportunity for coaches and parents to determine if playing on one of our Academy team is in the best interests of the player’s development.  The goal of assessments is to ensure that players are involved in programs that allow for optimal player development. 



3.  Can I join in the future?

Yes, any player can transition from our development stream to our competitive stream or vice versa, depending on what is best for each player and what type of commitment he or she wants to make.



4. Do I need to show up for every training session?

Committing to this program requires each player to take the responsibility to be present for most, if not all, training sessions.  Training sessions allow players to benefit the most from the program.



5. What days of the week do academy teams play?

Team training will take place on Tuesday nights with Club Head Coach Paul Burke, and Friday nights as part of the Whitecaps Academy.  Game nights will be either Wednesday or Thursday.
