1730 Riverside Lane   (250) 703-0202


*Please note, all interested players 2005-2006 born are also welcome to attend the first session

 The VIPL Teams advancing in cup play will gain from the combination of VISA Academy Training and VIPL Riptide Training for the duration of the 2015 VISA Spring Academy and/or the duration of the particular team’s cup run. Case in point, the 2014 U14 BCSA Provincial Cup A Champions from the VIPL Riptide Boys Program had the entire team participate in the spring academy to supplement their training and preparation for the provincial championships. This can and will be discussed with the respective VIPL Coaches on a team by team basis. Importantly, the VIPL Riptide and Vancouver Island Soccer Academy are working to make a seamless entry from the Fall-Winter Riptide Season into the Spring Academy for the 2015-2016 VIPL Riptide Soccer Season (which can and will continue to provide tremendous benefit to all of the players and coaches within the Comox Valley Soccer Community).

The entire VISA Spring Soccer Academy Staff will be on hand to answer your questions and make themselves available for discussion on any soccer related matters
