Cowichan Valley Football Association

BC Football is heading back to the 2017 Canada Cup


Chris Bertoia, University of Waterloo Head Coach states, “In regards to culminating all provinces, getting the best kids on same field, competing against each other and carrying provincial pride, it’s great. Recruiting is the lifeblood of any program. That’s why you see so many college coaches here at the Canada Cup.”

 “Recruiting is very competitive, every coach has their own style, and approaches it in a unique way, I just want to explain to kids what to expect if there’s an interest for you at UBC. I just set a base expectation and just give them base knowledge” states Head Coach of UBC, Blake Nill. The Canada Cup now features a recruiting fair every year, where CIS coaching staffs set up and make their pitch, hoping to create a good first impression.

image005 The BCPFA is extending invitations to ALL U18 (birth years 2000, 2001), U16 (2002, 2003) BC football players.
