CWSC Player Development Pathway
Our CWSC Player Development Pathway is aligned to the Canada Soccer LTPD roadmap.
Our programs reflect appropriate age based training with curriculum designed to meet the technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects of player development.
Calgary West Soccer Club has developed its Development Pathway, which outlines our modern-day soccer education methodology, and provides an age specific curriculum framework. To read more details on our Development Pathway, please see our "Calgary West Way to Develop".

Our curriculum accesses the most progressive understanding of player development through our partnership with FC Bayern and GPS.
Higher Level Player Opportunities
Along with the opportunities provided through the Canadian Soccer Association pathway, including the Excellence Stream Programs offered by Alberta Soccer Association, through our partnership with GPS, our players access the potential to make the GPS National Teams and/or be identified to the FC Bayern ID Program.
Through our partnership with GPS and the GPS College Placement Program, our extensive networks in the USA will facilitate personal contacts for our players in the States and expanding into Canada.
With our partnership with GPS, CWSC players also have access to the GPS PDL team based in Maine. Portland Phoenix is an American soccer team based in Portland, Maine, United States. Founded in 2009, the team plays in the Premier Development League (PDL), the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference.
