Westcastle International Academy’s adult teams are dependant on players from its own youth academy. The youth teams are trained in exactly the same way as the first team, therefore players are already accustomed to WIA’s style of play.
WIA strives to perpetuate a prominent standard in quality football training, for all facets of the game. We value the importance of a comprehensive development program, built around the individual first, and the team second, and encouraging and supporting our athletes to be successful both on and off the field.
Our programs are designed to develop and produce technically sound, creative, and intelligent football players at all levels of play, and to develop and support any motivated player for the rigor of high-performance or professional club soccer across Canada and abroad.
“We need to develop individual players so every player within our academy has his own individual plan to make the steps needed to finally get to the very top. “We use our [academy] team more or less not to win games, but to try to develop as many individual players as possible .” –Eddie Mukahanana, Technical Director
