Hey all, Am hearing about a change to the youth landscape. But, I wonder what others have heard? My understanding is all clubs and academies will be placed into Category 1 and Category 2 (don't know if there will be Cat 3, 4 etc). This includes BCSPL, academies, rec clubs etc. I don't know if there will be tiers within each category. Letting academies into the system can only help the kids IMO. I can see it creating the Wild West of soccer in the Abbotsford-Vancouver corridor though! This is apparently nationwide, not just BC. I googled "canada soccer category 1" and "canada soccer youth club designation." No results returned. I saw nothing on the CSA site (cursory glance) and nothing on BCSA (cursory glance). My guess is they aren't ready to announce. If the CSA is directing a change nationwide my only response is "finally!" Our leaders being leaders. Will it be the right plan? Tough to say. But those countries that have a unified approach to their youth development programs are thriving these days - Belgium, Germany, Iceland to name 3.
