Canada Soccer continues to develop young talent within the women’s EXCEL program with a U-15 National EXCEL Camp in Burnaby from 3-9 April, 2017.
“As part of our National EXCEL 14-17 Program, these U-15 camps focus on players that demonstrate long term future potential in our system, with the majority of these players coming from the EXCEL identification camps held in both the East and West regions,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Director. “This is a young maturing group and so it is exciting from a talent development perspective in key ages where you can influence and impact their long term development towards our Women’s EXCEL Positional Profiles.”
With major youth tournaments coming up next year, Canada Soccer’s EXCEL program is continuing to develop the skills needed as part of their journey towards the Women’s National Team and these international tournaments. Players born in 2003 and 2004 will be eligible to represent Canada in the upcoming 2018 CONCACAF Girl’s U-15 Championship, while those born in 2002 eligible for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Uruguay 2018.
“These camps allow us to ensure the base remains wider in these key maturation years and to cater for late developing players to ensure no long term talent is missed. Although there is the short term staging posts of both the CONCACAF U15 and U17 Championships as well as FIFA Tournaments, we know some of these young players have six or more years in our National and Regional EXCEL System which is exciting.
Led by Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Director, this EXCEL camp will continue to ensure the Women’s EXCEL Development Program identify and develop Canada’s best talent on the path to the Women’s National Team.
