A new soccer academy is open to young players in the Cariboo.
In an effort to grow the game in this region and help develop talent, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC launched the Cariboo Prospects Academy in partnership with the 100 Mile and District Soccer Association, Williams Lake Youth SA and Quesnel Youth SA.
The academy acts as a satellite program to the Northern Academy Centre in Prince George.
To be selected, players must go through an evaluation process, which take place Jan. 4 at the Quesnel Youth SA Indoor Facility.
The evaluation is free, but players must register online at www.whitecapsfc.com to be eligible.
The program is geared for boys and girls from U-10 to U-18.
