For the last 14 years we have been in Canada.
We were originally linked with a professional club but then worked with a local club side Academy.
The Academy increased its membership from 350 to over 1200 children aged 6-18 during our time.
We had huge success over the 14 years – not only increasing our numbers in both the girls and boys programmes, but seeing numerous teams winning City Championships, Provincial Championships and participating in the All Canada National Championships.
Individually, over 40 girls have gone on to University Scholarships in National College Athletic Association, Canadian Institute of Sport, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and we have coached 27 teams who have won City Championships from age 12-18.
The City Champions then compete for Provincial Championship in which 6 went on as winners to represent Alberta (Province) in the All Canada Championships.
We have also had the pleasure in assisting girls progress in the National Canadian Programme and Boys Achieve contracts in Germany, Iceland, Finland, Poland and England to further their elite careers.
Three of our former pupils now play in English Premier League, 6 play professionally in England and 1 in Poland. And 3 former pupils and players managing in the England Football league.
One of our biggest successes has been seeing our former students continue their soccer life after playing by becoming a coach, fitness instructor, statistician or analyst of the game as well as personal trainers, athletic therapists and physiotherapists.
