BC Soccer High Performance Program at Fortius
Did you know the Fortius facility has a 50-room lodge? From recreational to Olympic athletes and local to international teams, we host a range of incredible groups each year. Starting in 2017, we are excited to launch a new monthly spotlight highlighting some of the talented groups training and lodging with us.

Tell us a bit about your team, program or event:
The BC Soccer High Performance Program consist of two to three age specific programming camps held at various times throughout the year where players are specifically invited to participate based on recommendations from BC Soccer development staff, Whitecaps FC coaching staff, BC REX coaching staff and the technical directors from within the BCSPL franchise clubs. In addition to the camps, throughout the year, BC Soccer is also pleased to facilitate various identification matches with selected players.
Overall, the aim of the BC Soccer High Performance Program is to provide development and identification opportunities for potential selection into Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency (males) and BC REX (female) programming with the ultimate objective of having more players from BC involved in Canada Soccer National Team programming.
What is your most recent team achievement or best team memory?
Our most proud achievement is when we advance players onto higher levels of play.
The purpose of BC Soccer High Performance Program is to advance players onto the next level, there has been numerous players that have played within the BC Soccer High Performance Program that have moved on to youth/senior national teams, professional environments and university and college Levels. When we move the players to the next level, we feel these are successes that the program can be proud of.
What was your favourite experience staying/training at Fortius Sport & Health?
Fortius makes the logistics of our HPP Camps very easy. Everything that is needed is on location, lodging, meals, fields, meeting rooms, access to athletic therapy. The building and the services allows coaches like me to focus on our programming and most important the player’s overall development rather than the logistical parts.
