  1. So there seems to finally be movement on the part of the Highlanders. Rumors of possible new owners abound and they recently posted this to Facebook: "We're on the cusp of some exciting news. Looking forward to sharing it all this week - including the release of the PDL schedule. Stay tuned for more information!"
  2. Formed in 2015, this group currently supports Calgary Foothills FC PDL, and Calgary Foothills WFC UWS clubs. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a CanPL club in Calgary, and will be supporting that club when it arrives.

    Currently supporting KW United FC of the USL PDL but pining for the days we will be in the CanPL. If it is local, and it is soccer. We are there.

    CPL club "Identities" / Mission Statements

    So a couple of episodes back(not the last one but the one before that I believe) on footysoldiers they were talking about naming the teams and more than that sort of the club "mission statement"/"Identity" that would be the basis for each club. They mentioned "farmer johns" in regina and the regina regiment as well as privateers in halifax and how that can influence a team from the top-down so that there is always a clear purpose for how the team is going to play. Another example was the 86ers and how when they came in they said they were going to play BC guys and they were going to go for it in terms of scoring goals. I'll start off - I was thinking about Sigma Sauga - how the city is commonly understood as sort of a techhub/fortune 500 company hub and how sigma is a math symbol - this combined with seeing a tweet from the club recently where they were showing their youth players a slide show on tactics got me thinking. They could be known as precise and calculated tactically - it would go along with the Sigma thing as well as the general feel for the city. their mission statement could be something along the lines of "Our goal is to create intelligent, tactically aware players, who are capable of adapting on the fly different formations both from the opposition and from their own club, to give them a tactical advantage over the opponent - with the ultimate goal of winning, whether by defence or offence - by outsmarting the opposition". Thoughts?
  5. I guess with the release of the schedule it is about time to start a thread for the season. Gotta say I am not thrilled about ending the season playing the Sounders in Victoria Friday night, and then Sunday afternoon playing away to Calgary! Still looking forward to the season (and maybe a move to the new BC D3).
  6. The season is about to start and we (Lake Side Buoys) have gone ahead and made total asses of ourselves started a crappy Youtube channel: LSB TV. Our first episode has dropped and my apologies for every critical remark I ever made about Craig Forrest as a pundit on TV. I look stiff, scared and as if I was in physical pain.
  7. Looks like Thunder Bay Chill, K-W United, FC London and TFC Academy that they will no longer allow them to play in PDL as of 2017. Clubs are encouraged to join League1 Ontario. http://www.canadiansoccernews.com/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/24th-minute/ontario-gives-notice-on-pdl-in-province-r5507 Personally, I'm a fan of this move. I hate that Canada is so hitched to the US development system. More teams in L1O will hopefully mean better quality of play over time. Of course, the downside is that Thunder Bay doesn't seem like they want to go to L1O. I don't agree with their last point; one road trip out to Thunder Bay will not cause 14 other clubs (assuming FC London and K-W United join) to go broke... https://twitter.com/ThunderBayChill/status/667523415587319809 https://twitter.com/ThunderBayChill/status/667524664021925888
  8. Victoria Highlanders and Thunder Bay Chill play one PDL semi-final in Austin next week, meaning a Canadian club will play for the Cup. Great showing by Canadian clubs as said and credit to a lot of well-run organizations. http://www.uslsoccer.com/home/742125.html Sunday, July 28, 2013 TAMPA, Fla. – The Austin Aztex will host the 2013 PDL Championships presented by Nike after a thrilling weekend of action saw four teams advance from the PDL Conference Championships to keep their hopes of a title alive. The Aztex will welcome the Ocean City Nor’easters, Thunder Bay Chill and Victoria Highlanders to House Park for the conclusion to the 2013 PDL season. Austin claimed victory in the Southern Conference, with more than 5,000 fans on hand at House Park over two days of competition. The Aztex defeated Mid South Division rival the Laredo Heat to earn their berth in the semifinals as Khiry Shelton had a goal and assist to lead his side to victory. The Aztex will face the Eastern Conference Champion Ocean City Nor’easters in the semifinals after Ocean City defeated the Carolina Dynamo in a penalty shootout in Saturday’s conference semifinals before recording a 3-1 victory against the Ottawa Fury in Sunday night’s final. Coming off back-to-back Mid Atlantic Division titles, this is the Nor’easters first trip to the PDL Championships since joining the league in 2003. The Victoria Highlanders will also be making their first appearance at the championships after taking a pair of well-fought victories against the Ventura County Fusion and Portland Timbers U-23s to advance as the Western Conference Champion. The Highlanders got three goals in two games from Brett Levis, both of which proved to be game-winners, as they edged out Northwest Division rival Portland 1-0 in Sunday’s final. The Thunder Bay Chill will face the Highlanders in an all-Canadian semifinal after they booked their return to the championships with a 3-0 victory against defending champion FC London on Sunday evening in the Central Conference Final. The 2008 champion is making its second appearance in the past three seasons after reaching the semifinals in 2011, and its fourth appearance overall at the championships. The schedule for the semifinals and championship game will be announced shortly, with a full schedule for the championship weekend to be finalized on Monday.

    Senior players

    Interesting to see Ian Greedy from NS on the Ottawa Fury roster for 2012. Of course the NSSL changed the website for this season and the statistical archive is gone (thanks) but I thought he was a fairly good goal scorer in that league. It will be interesting to see how he fits into a PDL squad. Also noticed Will Beauge who played with Capital City last year and Anthony Di Biase formerly of Hamilton Rage. Is this a possible player development path, senior to PDL or CSL to PDL? Or is this just a good club to be on to get noticed?

    WSA Winnipeg 2012 Thread

    Hey everybody, This thread will be all about my club and the exciting things we will be doing this season. ...beginning with my announcement that I am joining the WSA Winnipeg Front Office full-time. http://www.wsawinnipeg.com/index.php/news/110-lee-haber-joins-wsa-front-office Lee Haber joins WSA Front Office Co-founder will take on bigger role as Director of Business Development and Operations You may not know him, but if you've watched a WSA home game and been following the club you have definitely seen his work first hand. In Year 2, he intends to take the club to the next level off-the-pitch. In its inaugural season, Mr. Haber played a key part in everything WSA Winnipeg. A former player of Coach Badescu's, the two teamed up in late 2010 with the goal of bringing a PDL team to Winnipeg and eventually professional soccer. He wrote the club's business plan which helped them secure a PDL franchise. That only begins to describe his contribution to WSA Winnipeg. Those scarves you hoist above your head. He designed them. The website. He built, using his experience in web-design he developed in previous jobs. The crest that adorns every jersey, t-shirt, flag, etc. Yeah, that too. Mr. Haber did all this in his spare time, while he wasn't working full-time as a railway engineer in Montreal. In spite of all the great things accomplished in WSA's first season, the front office recognized that what was needed to grow the organization was someone who could work on the business side full-time. The McGill graduate jumped at the opportunity. He quit his job, said goodbye friends in Montreal and flew back home to Winnipeg. "It is my dream to be part of growing the game in my hometown," said the 24 year-old. "I am in a position where I can take this risk." "I feel [Lee] is the perfect person for the job," said Coach Badescu. "He has already contributed so much and I believe he will do amazing things for our club now that we have him full-time" As WSA Director of Business Development and Operations, Mr. Haber will be responsible for growing and managing the business-side of WSA Winnipeg. This what he had to say WSA Winnipeg fans can expect in 2012: "Last year we got our foot in the door and proved the naysayers wrong that said PDL would never work in Winnipeg" "This year we are taking everything to the next level" As for what exactly that entails, fans have much to ponder about.

GAME DETAILS Sunday March 27 @ 12:30 pm WSF Indoor Soccer Complex - 211 Chancellor Matheson Road (@ the University of Manitoba) Tickets are available at the door, Red Card, BoniVital Soccer Club, FCNW, @ $14.00 / person.
  12. This is to all the Canadian soccer supporters who avidly follow the growth of the game in this country (especially the ones who live in Winnipeg). My name is Lee and I am part of a group that is launching a PDL team in Winnipeg. We will be making a formal public announcement in late November, but I felt that you guys should know about us beforehand. We believe there is a great passion for the sport in Winnipeg that simply hasn't been tapped. Our goal is to grow the game in our city by developing youth, engaging the community and providing an authentic soccer viewing experience. Part of this embracing the supporters culture, so one of our ideas is to have a supporters section and a supporters ticket page. Here's where we need your help: as a potential supporter we would like know what benefits you would like included in your ticket package. Here are some of our ideas: # Game Jersey # Team Scarf # (1) FREE beverage per match # Discount pricing for playoffs, exhibition friendlies, road trips # Automatic member of our members association (based on the Seattle Sounders Alliance) # Discount on food concessions Please let me know how much you would value each of these things. If you have your own ideas about anything really, please share them as well. Any feedback will help us be a better club. Yours in Soccer, Lee
  13. This is a call to all Winnipeggers who have been waiting to support a team they can call their own. Our club realizes the importance of the supporters. It their devotion and passion that makes a game more than a game and a team more than a team. We believe it is what sets our sport apart from all other North American sports and what keeps people coming back. Our goal is to have the loudest, most passionate and intimidating atmosphere in the PDL. Our press conference is tentatively scheduled for December 10th. The reason I mention this is that something we would really like is for those who have been waiting for this opportunity to come out and support us. I am letting you guys here know as to give you time to prepare. Let's show the doubters that passion for this sport runs deep and is more than a fad that comes around every four years. In order to help you get started, I will reveal that the team colours are red, white and black. If you want a sneak peak of our logo, PM me your email. However, this is where my involvement ends. It is important that all chants, banners, flags etc. come from the fans - otherwise it is comes off as contrived and inauthentic. Let your diehard soccer friends know - the more the better. Sincerely, Lee
