BURNABY METRO SELECT PROGRAM
At a meeting March 10, 2014 the Burnaby District Youth Soccer Association confirmed its decision to affiliate teams in the Metro Select League directly from District. There was a near-consensus on this action; representatives from all but one of the “feeder” clubs supported the confirmation.
Burnaby District thanks the Burnaby Metro Select Club for its service, and for its successes in administering the Metro Selects program for over 10 years. While District has decided to move in a different direction going forward, the program will benefit from the legacy left by the Burnaby Metro Select Club, not least including the many coaches from the Club who have joined the District program.
Burnaby District especially welcomes the work of its head coach, Frank Iuele, and his team of coaches. Frank’s position is a new one, and one we believe will provide the technical leadership necessary for the best possible approach to player development.
Player evaluations are now underway at all ages, and both genders (except U-16 and U-18 girls, where programs are operated by “feeder” clubs). They will continue into April.
The change in program administration has caused confusion about where to register for evaluations. While the Burnaby Metro Select Club continues to operate the 2013 – 14 teams, player evaluation for 2014 – 15 is ONLY VALID on the BURNABY DISTRICT website, that is, www.burnabysoccer.com
So, for an exciting 2014 – 15 soccer season at the Metro Selects level, players need to REGISTER NOW for player evaluations. Teams will be announced in April.
