Windsor TFC Academy Enters Soccer Academy Alliance of Canada
Club president Vancho Cirovski has announced the entry of Windsor TFC Academy into the Soccer Academy Alliance of Canada and the establishment of the boys U12 and U14 teams. Windsor TFC Academy teams will commence competition in SAAC this summer.
“Our entry into SAAC is a natural progression of our long term player development program,” said Cirovski. “We are pleased to join an exciting and dynamic league. SAAC provides the flexibility we need to manage a full year program and the competition to match.”
In conjunction with this announcement, Windsor TFC will be hosting a try-out camp for boys aged 11 to 14 to be held at McHugh Soccer Complex on July 11 and 12. Details regarding how to register for the camp are still to come.
“To excel, our local kids need to play against the best in the province, and the best play in SAAC,” Cirovski said. “So this is where we have to be.”
SAAC was established in 2005, with a vision to develop world class soccer players in Canada on a continual and systematic basis by providing members with the best-in-class training, facilities, and competition. Membership has grown from 25 teams and just under 400 players to over 150 teams and 2,500 players in 2016. In the past nine years, Academy graduates have gone on to professional careers, overseas trials, NCAA scholarships, and Canadian Universities. SAAC boasts some of the most experienced and educated coaches in the country, with over 75 professionally licensed coaches currently employed by its membership.
