The Vancouver Whitecaps soccer club’s SFU-based youth residency program took another step closer to reality last month when the Burnaby school district gave the go-ahead for participants to be schooled at Burnaby Central secondary. Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency, which begins in early September 2007 at SFU’s Burnaby campus, is a full-time program dedicated to grooming North America’s top youth players using the European club model. Prospects can access all resources available to university community, a full-time education and accommodation, including billeting with a local family or housing in residences. The club is looking for billeting families, who will be given an honorarium of $350 per month and Whitecaps season tickets.
