MEN’S HIGH-PERFORMANCE PATHWAY

Changes brought forward by BC Soccer to the BCSPL intake and exciting years and the need to foster a stronger pathway connecting youth to adult soccer have helped guide WIA’s program offerings for the 2024/2025 season.

We are excited to announce the launch of our integrated Men’s High-Performance Pathway (Men’s HP Program) which includes

  • Boy’s Competitive Pathway (U14) – BC A Cup
  • Boy’s Competitive Pathway (U17) – BC A Cup
  • Men’s  U21 (U18-U21) – VISL
  • Men’s  U23 – PCSL

WIA’s First team competes in the Pacific Coast Soccer League’s Premier League and the development team plays in Men’s VISL U21 in the preseason.

The British Columbia based Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) is BC Provincial and on occasion cross-border adult league with a season that runs typically from May to August. Member clubs are drawn from  cities in the British Columbia interior, the Fraser Valley, the Lower Mainland, and Vancouver Island.
