Girls U13 Rangers (2011)

WIA is excited to launch the new Pre- PDP team for players U13  that will be coached by our experienced Canada Soccer Youth National Licensed coaches.

After conducting ID camps, the WIA has decided to only select players that are Under 13 to compete in the LISA League at U13 (Tier 3). Training sessions will be 2-3 times per week to meet the standards in the four areas of development: Technical, Tactical, Physical and Psychosocial.
