Being on Santa’s “Nice” list has its advantages. Over the holidays, long time Campbell River Youth Soccer Association (CRYSA) player Fergus Hall received an invite to join the High Performance Program of B.C. Soccer.
Hall is one of 18 2002-born players invited into the program with its first camp kicking off Jan. 19-22 at Empire Fields in Vancouver. This camp is the first phase of a program that will see Hall train and play at both national and international venues throughout the spring and summer.
Hall currently represents CRYSA by playing on the U14 boys Marine Harvest Upper Island Riptide team. This announcement comes as no surprise to Riptide Technical Director, Shel Brodsgaard, “We are thrilled to learn of the inclusion of Fergus Hall in the BCSA High Performance Program. Fergus is a driven, hard working, motivated and talented young man who has been an asset to our program the past two years. On and off the field, Fergus continues to please our program with his professional approach to the game- always open to learn, laugh with his teammates and apply what he has been told.”
The Marine Harvest Upper Island Riptide teams are made up of members of the Powell River Youth Soccer Club, Comox Valley United Soccer Club, Campbell River Youth Soccer Association, and the North Island Youth Soccer Association.
