Royal Bay Secondary Soccer Academy – “Powered by Pacific”
The Royal Bay Soccer Academy is proud of our commitment and dedication to the development of players of all abilities. Our goal is to train players at a consistently high level and develop their skill, knowledge and overall enjoyment for the game. The Academy has been in operation since 2009 and is currently located at our Royal Bay Secondary campus. This year, we are excited to announce that our program is “Powered by Pacific”, with our local Professional Soccer Club (Pacific FC) enriching the program with coaching, curriculum development and player appearances.
The Soccer Program at Royal Bay is offered inside the regular school timetable, occupying one block of a student’s schedule each semester. Training is Monday-Friday on one of our various playing surfaces at Royal Bay Secondary (outdoor turf and grass fields, track and indoor turf gym)
The Academy offers both Regular and High Performance options for students
The Regular (Jr. and Sr.) Academy is a program for students who possess enthusiasm for the sport of soccer. It is not a program reserved only for elite players within the sport, but welcomes players of all skill levels who are committed to development both as soccer players and as individuals.
The High Performance Academy is for elite players that are interested in higher level development and/or interested in College/University, High Performance Leagues or Professional opportunities. Players interested in the program will be assessed on their skills and ability and will be chosen to the program through an invite only process.
*With the addition of the High Performance class to our program, we have already witnessed this enrichment as a pathway for players to reach the VI Wave, Team BC, Pacific FC and Vancouver Whitecaps residency.
Royal Bay Soccer Academy expects all students to demonstrate respect toward teammates, coaches, officials, opponents, and all other staff that they interact with on a regular basis. Players of Royal Bay Soccer Academy will constantly be reminded of the expectation for them to be exceptional citizens of both Royal Bay Secondary School and our community.
Royal Bay Soccer Academy will focus on the primary methods of assessment including objective, subjective, self-assessment and peer-evaluation. Students will be assessed on their Behaviour, Effort, Attitude, and Participation (BEAP) weekly. Students will also be evaluated on skill development, fitness and written assignments. Royal Bay Soccer Academy students will be reported on a regular basis, including 4 formal reports (report cards).
BEAP (Behaviour, Effort, Attitude, Participation) 50%
Skill (Level and Progression) 30%
Fitness and Theory 20%
Thanks for your interest in the Royal Bay Soccer Academy. We look forward to having the opportunity to work with you in the future.
