The BMO Coastal Soccer Centre is scheduled to open for play in the spring of 2019. This brand new, indoor facility is one of the only facilities of its kind in the lower mainland, owned and operated by a club (Coastal FC). This $5 million state of the art indoor soccer facility provides the best possible environment for footballing excellence within the province. With weather elements being identified as a major barrier to player development in Canada, the BMO Indoor Soccer Centre is the largest purpose built facility of its kind in the lower mainland and sets a new standard for player development facilities within the country. The inspirational environment, which is free from the harsh elements of the Canadian weather, allows Coastal to focus on a player development strategy that aims to produce the next generation of high performance, professional, and national team players. The combination of FIFA approved 3G turf, indoor training, professional coaching, and an innovative curriculum creates a developmental experience like no other.
The Coastal FC Player Academy “The Academy” caters to U5 -U7 players of all levels seeking to develop their technical ability and improve their overall game. The Indoor Academy will focus on a progression of technical and tactical components of the game delivered by experienced and qualified staff.
The Indoor Academy also provides a challenging, supported and passionate environment for players to have fun and develop.
About The Indoor Academy Program
The Coastal FC Player Academy will incorporate players from all levels of play. By creating one Academy structure it allows the Club to assess players more readily and bridges the gap between different ages and/or levels of play.
Indoor Academy Structure and Player Movement
Groups will be structured by ability and/or age. Players will have the opportunity, based on staff assessment and recommendation, to move within the academy system.
For example: Players at the entry level (House) will have the opportunity to develop their abilities for possible placement at higher levels such as Prospects or Rep. Similarly, players attending from the Prospects and Rep levels will have the opportunity to develop their abilities for possible placement at higher levels such as Rep or potentially Premier League in the near future.
Parents must remain present at all times for U5-U7 players.
Indoor Academy Goals
The goal of The Academy is to help develop and prepare individuals for participation in a variety of programs in the future and help foster a love for the game throughout their soccer careers. The experience gained from attending The Academy will properly prepare players for the transition into these levels of programming.
