BCSPL High Performance Academy
The Surrey United BCSPL High-Performance Academy (HPA) is excited to offer a development academy program for the U10-U12 (2005 – 2007 born) select players in Surrey United SC, Langley United and Guildford AC, as well select players from clubs in the SU BCSPL regional area such as Surrey Youth Pegasus, CCB and Surdel. This program is going into its 6th year and has produced some top players who have gone on to success at the BC Soccer PDP level, and also with Whitecaps FC and Canadian Soccer Association teams.
This regional based academy is the first club-based academy of its kind in the province and is designed to service the motivated select players by creating a competitive environment that pools players with similar technical and tactical abilities under high-quality participation standards. Jeff Clarke (Surrey United SC Technical Director) will be the technical lead of the program and will be assisted by Mark Parker (LUYSA Technical Director) and Scott Hyams (Guildford AC Technical Director). Scott Howey (SUSC Asst. TD) will be the lead instructor and will be supported by other top coaches from the Surrey United BCSPL program.
The Surrey United BCSPL HPA program will be open to U10-U12 boys and girls.
20 x 75 minute training sessions in two 10-session sets on Friday evenings throughout the soccer season

*Length of sessions: 75-minutes (either 5:45pm – 7pm or 7pm-8:15pm)
*Position Specific Training (age-appropriate)
All players will be trained in general position-specific methods and sessions. These sessions will be tailored to U10-U12 players and will be an introductory version of the heavily successful program that the SUSC BCSPL players receive.
*Player Feedback Reports
All participants will receive written progress reports at the halfway point and end of the program.
*Soccer Specific Speed and Fitness Testing
We will be hosting fitness testing similar to the testing done at the SUSC BCSPL program. The scores will be kept to measure improvement over the year(s).
*Low Coach:Player ratio
Our program will run with an approx Coach:Player ratio of 1:12. This low ratio will allow each player to receive the personal attention that is required.
The objective of the SU BCSPL HPA is to challenge and further develop the players’ technical and tactical levels and better prepare them for future opportunities in the SU BCSPL program and other higher-level programming such as Whitecaps FC Full-time programs and BC Soccer provincial teams. In addition to the great training environment that the academy provides there are additional opportunities where selected players can showcase themselves. (see below)
