Skill Centre is a Canada Soccer recommended development model for players of all abilities. The Skill Centre focus is on individual player development, as opposed to team formation (as per the Community League). Players attending the Skill Centre will benefit from a lead coaching staff of experienced, licensed coaches who provide a variety of training and game experiences.

Players may be identified to receive an invitation to the Skill Centre + program, which will be supported by Vancouver Whitecaps FC staff visits.
