How do I become a member of a Canada Soccer National Team Program?

Canada Soccer’s National Teams Programs have a wide-range of talent development and talent identification programs and processes aimed at ensuring that the maximum number of talented players at all levels of the game are assessed for participation in National Team playing opportunities. In most cases, a player must be identified as a high-performance player in their respective province and be playing in a high-performance environment to participate in a Canada Soccer National Team event.
