This competition will be directed to have as many like minded, quality players competing and developing together through their player pathway. Events with potential Canada Soccer staff in attendance will further emphasis the value of the stream for this pathway.

For the 2006 age group - this excellent opportunity will only be offered from the 3 listed clubs above.
This event is multi-faceted and will include:
