Football BC has partnered with Football University (FBU) to offer its provincial under-18 team, better known as Team BC, the opportunity to compete in a tournament facing fellow under-18 All-Star teams from the U.S. and internationally as part of the All-American Bowl Week to be held in early January 2013 in San Antonio, Texas.
For this year’s squad, the tournament in Texas will take the place of the Football Canada Cup which Team BC had previously competed in for the past two years.
Team BC will continue its normal practice of inviting approximately 120 players to a mini-camp to be held over the May long weekend at Simon Fraser University. A further cut-down will be made at some point following the mini-camp.
Team BC players who have been invited to the May long weekend mini-camp at SFU (click here for the list of players) can now confirm their spot at the camp by registering online at www.playfootball.bc.ca/contacts.
The camp will open on the afternoon of Saturday, May 19 and run through until Monday, May 21. The cost to attend the camp is $100 (without accommodation) or $225 (with two-day accommodation at SFU). All players will have lunch provided for two days (Sunday and Monday).
Players who choose the accommodation option will also be provided with Saturday night dinner, Sunday morning breakfast, Sunday night dinner and Monday morning breakfast.
The deadline to register for the camp is Friday, May 11.
To register, please go to www.playfootball.bc.ca/contacts.
*NOTE* For players who are coming from out-of-town and have parents that also wish to stay on campus, we invite you to visit the site for SFU's Simon Hotel. Please note that parents wishing to stay must make their own arrangements.
