- Affiliation with the only Canadian member of the Under Armour Association.
- Unparalleled sponsorship through Under Armour.
- Access to an exclusive competitive schedule.
- Unique training and playing opportunities.
- High-level exposure to university/college scouting.
- Preparation and recruitment services for our university/college-bound student-athletes.
Shane James, Director of Canada Elite comments…“We are thrilled to have a first-class program in Vancouver Sports Club on board with our Canada Elite family. In competing against VSC in the past and knowing their commitment to excellence, both in competitive play and in the character development of youth, we see this collaboration as mutually beneficial”.
The incorporation of Canada Elite as part of the VSC development ladder, we will continue to operate as a grassroots basketball organization, with our elite teams playing under the Canada Elite Vancouver brand. Our elite players will have the opportunity to represent Canada Elite in the Under Armour Association (15U-17U) and the Under Armour Future (10U-14U) programs, joining the elite travel teams and playing in a competitive league-style circuit. Members of our coaching staff will also have the opportunity to advance their development through coaching on Canada Elite teams at various levels.
Stay tuned for more information regarding the 2022 Spring/Summer tryouts for our VSC and Canada Elite Vancouver teams.
