Posted on 20 February 2017 in ↳ Women's EXCEL U-14 to U-17

In it’s pursuit of great Canadian soccer talent, Canada Soccer has invited 59 young players to attend both East and West  identification camps for the National EXCEL program. 

The camps will take place in Laval, QC 20-23 February (East), and in Burnaby, BC from 27 February to 2 March (West). 
 
Canada Soccer National Excel identification camps give players an opportunity to be assessed and monitored by Canada Soccer national staff, while training with the best young talent in Canada. 
 
Led by Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Director, National EXCEL identification camps will continue to ensure that the Women’s Excel Development Program access Canada’s best talent on the path to the Women’s National Team. 
 
“By casting the net wider in these key maturation years, we aim to ensure no potential talent is missed. With development and monitoring of these players taking place inside Regional EXCEL Centres for the most part, we will assess and build on  the Gold Medal Profiles of these players to  continue producing more Sinclairs, Buchanans and Flemings, by design, more often,” said Priestman. The alignment of our talent development system from regional to national will ultimately create a much greater opportunity to reach the top of the podium at the senior level, not only in Tokyo 2020, but also in 2024 and beyond.”
