NORTH LONDON YDP TO ALIGN WITH WHITECAPS JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Beginning in the Fall of 2015, the North London Programs for the 2010-2006 birth years will be aligned with those of the newly formed London Youth Whitecaps and will be part of a Whitecaps Junior Development Program. North London Club President, John Dreliozis, the head of the North London YDP, will remain in charge of the 2009 and 2010 age divisions with the Whitecaps, as will Ugo De Candido for the 2008 Boys.
This organizational adjustment is a result of the initiative of the Vancouver Whitecaps opening a Whitecaps FC Academy Centre in London. A new not for profit Club, London Youth Whitecaps, has been established to work with the Academy, to provide additional training, and to run teams for league and tournament play at the Inter-District, Regional and Provincial levels. It is an organizationally sensible extension for that Club to establish, with the help and support of its Partner Clubs, a development program for the younger age divisions. Hence, the Whitecaps Junior Development Program
Elgin Middlesex Soccer Association (EMSA) the ruling body for soccer in our area, has been instrumental in bringing these developments about, and is a co-partner with the Whitecaps in what is an effort to bring common purpose and a co-operative ethos to the fractured nature of youth soccer in London and area. North London Soccer Club strongly supports this much needed initiative and is also transferring the league rights of all its Regional and Provincial youth teams to the Whitecaps. Along with many other Clubs from our area, North London has the status of a Partner Club with the London Youth Whitecaps and will work with the other Partner Clubs to do our best to ensure that this new arrangement results in an improved soccer environment for our young players.
North London will then be aligning its development Programs for the U6-U10 age divisions with the Whitecaps as of September 2015, and the personnel that made the YDP so successful will continue to be very active at these critical age groups in ensuring that players have a sound foundation from which to progress. Program details, assessment dates, and contact info will be provided on the London Youth Whitecaps website - www.londonyouthwhitecaps.com - where a list of Partner Clubs and details of other age divisions are also provided.
The 1999 WOYSL L3 Girls travelled to South Bend, Indiana over the U.S. Memorial Day Weekend to compete in the Jr. Irish Memorial Day Invitational Tournament. The girls had three victories and kept a clean sheet in all three games to represent North London well. Thanks to Coach Gus and all of the parents for their guidance and support.
Congratulations ladies on a great showing!
