U13 Initiation Teams (Players born in 2001)
Mountain United FC will be holding a series of evaluations for selection to its 2013 – U13 Initiation Teams. Current MUFC coaches will be assisting with this process and head coaches for the two new teams will be announced soon. Players born in the year 2001 are eligible for selection. *Please note, players born in the year 2002 may be considered for evaluation but only if identified and endorsed by MUFC’s Technical Director through scouting and recommendation in advance. The teams will be selected by early/mid March 2013. They will participate in an exhibition game/tournament schedule from April to June before taking a summer break. These teams will then play in the EA Sports BCSPL mini season from September to November 2013. Following a re-evaluation phase in November and winter break, the teams will move on to the full U13 EA Sports BCSPL season in February 2014.
The EA Sports BCSPL www.bcsoccerpremierleague.net is the new high performance league with eight regional Clubs. It represents the highest level of youth soccer in the province. Players aspiring to play in this league require commitment and dedication to the program. At Mountain United FC, professional coaches are in place to enable players to reach their full potential in a player-centric development model. The U13 Initiation Teams will train twice per week during the Spring schedule but will progress to three times per week in the Fall and includes a SAQ (Speed-Agility-Quickness) Program. If you are a motivated player ready to commit yourself to this level, please register for our evaluations.
The first two evaluations are Open Identification camps and will be held the weekend of February 15/16, 2013. Details are noted below. Upon registration (Registration links for Boys and Girls are below), players will be placed into one of these camps and notified via e-mail. We will balance the camps by volume and position in order to maximize assessment opportunities. Only selected players will return for an Invitational Camp on February 24, 2013. A Final Invitational camp is scheduled for March 3, 2013 which will conclude the evaluation process. The teams will be announced thereafter.
