At Port Coquitlam FC, our primary goal is to place players in an environment that promotes skill development and overall enjoyment of the game. This will allow them to find success and develop a passion for the game.

Our evaluation process seeks to have players placed on a team that suits their level of play at the time of selection. Players are observed throughout the season in a variety of different environments. With the assistance of our Technical Director, Technical staff, and coaches providing player feedback, we are able to successfully place players on the appropriate team. These decisions are made in the best interests of our players and their long-term development.

This yearlong approach helps to attain a clearer “picture” of each player in terms of their skills, level of play, and commitment. We are confident that this method which involves a variety of sources for feedback provides us with the ability to make sound decisions around player placement. This process falls in line with Canada Soccer and BC Soccer guidelines.

Community/Division 3 teams can request specific team placements – placements are not guaranteed however as we strive to balance all teams and accommodate all requests when possible

Development/Division 1/Division 2 teams – NO. The final evaluation is based on all players overall assessments. Allowing specific requests like this circumvents the evaluation process.

Development/Division 1/Division 2 – Expect two training sessions plus one game a week.

Community/Division 3 – Expect one or two training sessions a week plus one game a week.

Additional training opportunities may be available through our Academy.

Expect two or three training sessions a week. One may be with the Technical Team if the player/team elects to join the Academy sessions, plus one game a week.

This must be invited by the Technical Director.

Our goal is to have Development/Division 1/Division 2 teams formed as soon as possible after the current season ends.

Community Teams/Division 3 teams are formed throughout the Spring and Summer.
