Canada Soccer is holding its first full development camp for the U-17 eligible group of players 17-25 April at Fortius in Burnaby, BC ahead of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018.

The camp will focus on the development of this age group through the introduction of the Canada Soccer National EXCEL Curriculum, but also give Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Director Bev Priestman and EXCEL staff an opportunity to assess the players against the Canada Soccer Positional Profiles as it continues to track young talent towards Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 and 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“It’s exciting to bring this young talented group together properly for the first time. It’s an age group which you can really impact, not only for the short term but also long term,” said Priestman. “In recent cycles, this age group has seen players accelerate up through the system, including current National Team players Jessie Fleming and Deanne Rose, but also Jordyn Huitema who is currently still eligible for this particular group. I know the system alignment with the Women’s National Team is a real motivation to this group, something that we hope will make them push to new levels in their daily training environments.”

The camp in Burnaby has been designed to start their National EXCEL four to six year journey and track the progress of players born 2001 and younger. Players have previously been identified through the EXCEL player development system, with preparation for the next FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2018.

“Over the last four years the quality of experience for young, talented, Canadian female players has improved immensely due to the alignment and delivery of our EXCEL system,” said Priestman. “Camps like these allow us to put best with best, and provide them with the tools and understanding to be able to bring alive the Women’s EXCEL playing model with upcoming key events in mind as benchmarking steps in their longer-term Women’s National Team journey.”

Looking ahead to the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018, this age group will compete in a four nations tournament in China in July against Japan, China and the USA. In the leadup to the world cup, there will be an additional three development camps in 2018, as well as a CONCACAF tournament for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup early in the year.

Canada Soccer’s EXCEL System, designed by Women's EXCEL Program Director and Women’s National Team Head Coach John Herdman, has already produced eight Women’s National Team players, and Olympic bronze medalists, in Kadeisha Buchanan, Ashley Lawrence, Jessie Fleming, Rebecca Quinn, Janine Beckie, Shelina Zadorsky, Deanne Rose, and Gabrielle Carle, three of whom are still eligible for youth competition.

Canada Soccer Women’s National EXCEL Program brings together the best with the best at the national youth level. Operating across the U-14 to U-20 age groups, the program is designed to deliver an aligned talent structure and system that progresses more top players to Canada’s Women’s National Team.

Canada Soccer continues to develop young talent within the women’s EXCEL program with a U-15 National EXCEL Camp in Burnaby from 3-9 April, 2017.

“As part of our National EXCEL 14-17 Program, these U-15 camps focus on players that demonstrate long term future potential in our system, with the majority of these players coming from the EXCEL identification camps held in both the East and West regions,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Director. “This is a young maturing group and so it is exciting from a talent development perspective in key ages where you can influence and impact their long term development towards our Women’s EXCEL Positional Profiles.”

With major youth tournaments coming up next year, Canada Soccer’s EXCEL program is continuing to develop the skills needed as part of their journey towards the Women’s National Team and these international tournaments. Players born in 2003 and 2004 will be eligible to represent Canada in the upcoming 2018 CONCACAF Girl’s U-15 Championship, while those born in 2002 eligible for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Uruguay 2018.

“These camps allow us to ensure the base remains wider in these key maturation years and to cater for late developing players to ensure no long term talent is missed. Although there is the short term staging posts of both the CONCACAF U15 and U17 Championships as well as FIFA Tournaments, we know some of these young players have six or more years in our National and Regional EXCEL System which is exciting.

Led by Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s National EXCEL Director, this EXCEL camp will continue to ensure the Women’s EXCEL Development Program identify and develop Canada’s best talent on the path to the Women’s National Team.

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.”
