The University of British Columbia

The UBC Okanagan Heat Athletics and Recreation department (‘UBCO Heat’) traditionally operates high performance junior programs as an opportunity for high school-aged athletes to be engaged with UBCO Heat high performance programming that endeavors to assist or lead in working with Okanagan athletes in preparation for the opportunity to pursue their sport at the post-secondary varsity level, whether it be at UBCO or other post secondary institutions.

In order to operate junior-aged soccer programming under the UBCO Heat structure, UBCO is considering the opportunity of programming that would be hosted in consultation, support, and partnership with all major community soccer stakeholders who are working with high-school aged players. UBCO Heat is looking for feedback from the stakeholders on the opportunity to supplement the athlete experience that currently exists.

  1. Supplement high-school aged soccer player development within the Kelowna (and surroundings) community.
  2. Offer UBCO Heat high-calibre academy-based soccer programming.
  3. Run program offerings in alignment with the community.
  4. Create an integrated and balanced programming schedule with the community soccer leadership teams that will support athlete participation in all community soccer offerings (e.g. not have overlapping or similar programming happening at the same time, where an athlete may have to ‘choose’ between 2 or more community stakeholder offerings)
  5. Cross-promotion of community stakeholder offerings through our marketing and promotional platforms.
  6. Encourage the sharing of resources, including athlete and coach development
  7. Offer a unique opportunity for high school aged soccer players seeking future post-secondary soccer opportunities.
