Whitecaps FC Skills Challenge

The Whitecaps have introduced a new Skills Challenge into this year’s camps!

Skills Challenge Drills:

  • 4 challenges: Dribbling, Turning, Receiving, and Passing
  • Players tested daily
  • Players receive an accumulation of points for each challenge
  • At the end of camp players get a challenge scorecard with a total score

Philosophy

  • There is more to a player than their score in a Challenge!
  • Our philosophy is to motivate self-improvement. Each player is encouraged to do the best they can and use the scores to track their own development over time.

Skills Challenge Finale

  • 100 players with the best scores and attitude will be selected from camps across the country and invited to a Skills Challenge Finale with the date to be determined
  • Tentative Schedule:
    • Noon. Challenge Finale at the Whitecaps training centre at UBC
      • Includes final challenges and a tour of the training centre.
    • Whitecaps FC match for all players

*Note – 2 tickets included. Any travel expenses are the responsibility of the family.
