Para Soccer program hosts March evaluation camps

Posted on 3 March 2017 in Para Soccer

Canada Soccer's Para Soccer program will hold two evaluation camps in March as the team starts their preparations to the IFCPF World Championships in September. More than 30 players will take part in the two camps, the first in Pickering, Ontario from 4-5 March and the second in Sidney, British Columbia from 25-26 March.

"We are excited to see the guys for the first time in 2017, both our younger players and experienced players," said Drew Ferguson, Canada Soccer's National Para Soccer Team Head Coach. "We are also looking forward to see a handful of new players across the two camps, so it will be good to see if they meet the classification criteria and if they could have an immediate impact on the program."

While Ferguson has called 31 players to the two camps, he is also leaving the door open in case any other local players that meet the program's criteria are available for a try out. The camp in Pickering will be supported by the Pickering Soccer Association while the camp in Sidney will be supported by the Peninsula Soccer Association.

Canada will participate in the 2017 IFCPF World Championships from 13-22 September in San Luis, Argentina. Canada are one of 16 nations that will participate in the Para Soccer event.

Canada's Para Soccer Team is made up of athletes who have cerebral palsy or have had a stroke or brain injury. Athletes that are interested in Canada's Para Soccer Team should contact coach Drew Ferguson at dferguson@canadasoccer.com.
