WIA RANGERS TEAMS

  • WIA Rangers teams play in the LISA U10/U11 and U11/U12 Developmental League, which aligns with Canada Soccer requirements for Skill Centres
  • WIA does not have set teams, but fluid rosters that are created weekly according to the competition and individual player’s development

Visit our camps page for Player Identification Camp dates to apply for the  Skill Centre.

The Skill Centre is a standards-based program, therefore all players applying to the Skill Centre must attend an ID camp for evaluation.

Players must apply and attend the free ID camps to be considered for the WIA Skill Centre – Rangers teams.

Players will be evaluated along all 4 aspects of player development; mental, physical, technical and tactical skill.

Once ID camps are completed, selected players will be invited to join WIA’s Skill Centre.

Of those players invited:

Players (U10-U12)

  • A group of players will be invited to join the Skill Centre and selected to play for WIA in the LISA League.

  • WIA players are guaranteed a minimum 50%  playing time for every game.

WIA’s Philosophy on Player Placement

The placement of players is based on a variety of variables:

  • “Soccer Age” (player’s maturity, physical age, technical ability and overall understanding of soccer)
  • Stage of physical development and literacy (fluid and ever-changing)
  • Team dynamic
  • Biological age

Some players may play in their biological age group, while others are placed on teams based on their soccer age. WIA technical coaches decide a player’s placement on an individual basis.

Parents and players must understand the following as it relates to the Skill Centre and WIA Teams. WIA:

  • Cannot enroll more players than the player-to-coach ratio allows
    • Priority registration will be given to players selected for WIA Teams
    • Should space allow, additional spots will be given to players seeking supplementary training from other clubs
  • Cannot turn away players who show promise just because they are inexperienced at the present moment
  • Cannot accurately predict the potential or future performance of a player
  • Cannot guarantee that your player will make the BCSPL team at U13 because the characteristics of young players are not the same as those of mature elite athletes
  • Can develop and support players who are ready and willing to train, follow our standards-based training methods and trust our judgement as it relates to their development
