In partnership with Simon Fraser University, this program offers high performance soccer training in a University environment. The emphasis is to develop the complete student-athlete, with focus on both the athletic and academic development of each participant. The SFU Soccer Clinic sessions will consist of on-field technical development, complemented by speed, strength and power training sessions, as well as classroom instruction in areas of nutrition, sport psychology and other areas related to the science of sport and training as applied to the game of soccer.
This unique partnership with a post-secondary institution provides access to a high performance training environment, including the facilities (three gymnasiums, swimming pool, climbing wall, fitness centre).
The SFU Soccer Clinic will be running the TWO morning blocks of Semester 2. The first day of the 2021-22 Soccer Clinic will be January 31st, and it will run every day until June 22nd (the end of the school year).

This is an option for any district student in Grades 8-12 with academic requirements met at their home school. Students receive credit for PE and a sport specific course.
