The two-day camp helped the Canadian Deaf Sports Association (CDSA) assess players from the Alberta and British Columbia regions. The Canadian coaching staff said it was a positive camp with players excited for the chance to be a part of this new program.
“We have seen a total of 32 players,” said Drew Ferguson, who served as a coaching consultant at the two camps. “I will now sit down with the CDSA and discuss recommendations. Matt Greenwood was also at both camps
and will now take on the responsibility of becoming head coach.”
The CDSA and the Canadian Soccer Association will proceed to organize a four-year plan based on the strengths and level of the soccer players.
