CVUSC Club has developed a program which is regarded as one of the most successful on Vancouver Island. Our staff will continue to develop and review the methodology utilized in the areas of coaching to ensure the best available practice is delivered consistently. We are aware that each player will grow, develop and mature at different stages throughout their time in the Club. Therefore, it is important that we have a program which is age specific.
