TEAM ALBERTA U18/17
Football Alberta has begun the selection process for the creation of our Team Alberta U18, which will represent the province at the 2017 Football Canada Cup in Nova Scotia next July, and our new Team Alberta U17 which will represent the province at Pacific U17 Challenge in Hawaii next August. The Superweekend is scheduled for:
Friday, January 13 through Sunday, January 15, 2017
Foote Field Indoor Field, Edmonton
Please note that this event is only for players who are 17 years old or younger and born in the years of 2000, 2001 or 2002. If you were not born in those years, DO NOT CALL asking for an exemption as one will not be granted.
This camp can have over 400 athletes who are nominated by their coaches to come to SUPERWEEKEND. After this camp, around 80+ players will be selected to advance to the Main Selection Camp for Team Alberta U18 and U17 that will take place the weekend of April in Calgary. This camp will determine who goes to the Football Canada Cup (Team Alberta U18) and who will go to the Pacific Challenge (Team Alberta U17).
Please note that this is a full contact football camp. It will feature on-field and off-field sessions. We are looking for athletes with a great skill set as well as great attitudes and character to move on to the next level.
Any nominated players is eligible to participate in these camps, but more importantly whether they make the next step to the Main Selection Camp or not, they will be exposed directly to quality coaching that will include coaches from the University and Junior teams thus giving players who want to continue on past high school a chance to begin to explore the possibility of post-secondary football. It will also get your name of the Football Canada database for consideration in the future for international teams. Note that the only way to advance internationally for U20 and Senior Men’s teams in the future is being active in the Provincial Team process now.
