Calgary West Soccer Club Team Chelsea G16 has been chosen to represent Canada in the opening ceremonies of the Gothia Cup in Sweden this July!

Chelsea will wear red jackets donated by BMO to represent our Canadian colours and don traditional white hats symbolizing our western heritage and the Calgary Stampede as they march into Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg carrying the Canadian flag. The tournament which started in 1975 is considered the largest youth tournament in the world and has grown to over 1600 teams participating from over 80 countries this year. The girls have worked hard to raise funds through various activities towards the costs of their trip and we are very proud that they have the honour of representing Canada on opening day. 

Best of Luck Chelsea!

Josh Akiyama U18 B United on his way to a try out with the Portland Timbers Academy

Portland Timbers are looking to recruit Josh Akiyama, from our U18B Tier 1 United team.
The Youth Technical Director of the Portland Timers - Larry Sutherland has seen our video of Josh playing in Calgary and Germany (Berlin) and asked for reports for several MLS scouts who saw him in Vancouver at the Whitecaps Showcase Tournament,
Portland Timbers are wanting to offer Josh a spot in their academy and sign him for next season.
They have invited Josh to Portland for this weekend to check everything out first, and hopefully to sign the contract.
Chris McKaig , coach of United, and Head Coach, Director of Player Promotion, can be largely creditied for identifying Josh's talent as a U14Tier 3 player, developing him to a Tier 1+ player, along with all of his team mates on United, and promoting him in Wales, Belgium, Scotland, and most recently, Germany, with our Technical Director, Henry Haeusler's support. We hope that Portland will be an important stepping stone for Josh's socccer career.
We wish Josh all of our best wishes for a successful try out.
We will post updates as his time in Portland unfolds... 
Go Josh go!

Important Announcement - Congratulations to Hayes Wittrock

Calgary West “United” U18 player, Hayes Wittrock, has recently secured a scholarship to a top US College. Hayes will be departing for Columbia, Missouri this august where he will become a part of the Columbia College Cougars Soccer Program. Columbia were NAIA (The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) national tournament quarter finalists as well as wining the American Midwest Conference regular season, going undefeated and compiling a 19-4 season record.

Columbia have secured Hayes’ services with the ambition of going on to win a national title this coming fall season.

Hayes was able to secure over an impressive $80,000 US Dollars of scholarship that will cover his entire tuition costs to attend Columbia.

This was made possible through a relationship developed by United Coach Chris Mckaig and Danny McBride at Athletes USA. Danny is a Dundee, Scotland native, a former US college coach and is now an agent and scout for Athletes USA.  He and Coach Mckaig played together in Scotland, and this past summer Danny was able to attend our Dundee United Soccer Camp.  

Athletes USA, is the world’s leading sports scholarship consultancy group that has helped over 3,000 athletes be placed at elite US colleges. They have brought athletes over 100 million dollars of athletic scholarship in their short existence as a company and are now delighted to be helping players from Canada fulfill their ambitions of being able to go to the US to pursue a University education while playing soccer at the highest level.

Congratulations from all of us in Calgary West. We are excited for Hayes, and are proud of his achievements. We are grateful for the support of Danny McBride who has seen the quality of players developed in Calgary West. He is eager to support more opportunities for our players. Finally, credit Chris Mckaig, who dedicates a huge part of his life to supporting the development of our players. His networks in the States is invaluable for future opportunities for Calgary West players - girls and boys.

Go Green! Go Hayes!
