Juan de Fuca soccer players shoot for Team B.C.

Group of Island Wave players named to participate in first phase of provincial team program

A handful of Juan de Fuca-trained soccer players in the Vancouver Island Wave elite program have been named to B.C. Soccer’s provincial team program.

Lower Island Soccer Association head coach Andrew Latham announced this week that Juan de Fuca’s Brynne Smith, Hannah Unwin, Emily Worsfold and Mitch Whittla were among 22 Greater Victoria players selected to participate in the first phase of the provincial development program.

Other clubs represented included Gorge, Bays United, Cowichan, Prospect Lake, Saanich Fusion, Lakehill and Salt Spring.

Wave boys’ and girls’ teams at various age groups play in the new EA Sports B.C. Soccer Premier League, a high-performance youth soccer league with a long-term goal of improving the level of play in B.C. and ultimately, Canada.

Players in the 2003 age group begin evaluations next month, information on which can be found at lowerislandsoccer.com or by emailing headcoach@lowerislandsoccer.com.
