Burnaby FC today announced details for the Winter Phase of the Development Centre program consistent with Canada Soccer’s Youth License Holder requirements. The program in its inaugural year will focus on 2010-2016 born players with an aim to expand the program year by year to eventually cover all age levels. The program, following Canada Soccer guidelines, is open to ALL players born in 2010-2016 looking for additional training outside of their team/league environment.
The Winter Phase is scheduled to start the week of January 8th and run over 10 weeks. To provide players with as many opportunities as possible, multiple DC training sessions are offered per week for most age levels, with parents given the choice to register their child for one or two sessions a week. No sessions will be held over the BC Family Day long weekend.
BFC’s Development Centre is overseen by TDs Lee Tregonning and Kevin Julian and is coordinated by Adam Hayne (Senior Staff Coach- HP Boys) along with fellow Senior Staff Coaches Kat Tomic (Girls – HP), Nico Echeverria (Boys) and Kim Bull (Girls).
The Burnaby FC Nationally Licensed Player Development Centre is for all players wishing to improve their soccer skills and progress to the higher levels. Our Development Centre will consist of Nationally Certified Burnaby FC coaches, following CSA and BCSA guidelines and recommendations using current sport science-backed program design, including the LTPD (Long-Term Player Development) and Player Pathway.
Our player-centered programming emphasizes the development of each individual player, to reach their full potential in a fun and challenging environment. Players are continually assessed and provided feedback on their ongoing development, including potential BFC High-Performance placement.
The Development Centre training sessions for 2010-2015 born players will be held at Burnaby Lake West, Burnaby North, and Burnaby Central turf fields with some 2015 sessions at Scotia Barn (Burnaby 8 Rinks). The 2016 born players will only train indoors at Scotia Barn. Development Centre registration is now open. To register click here.
