Expression of Interest for players interested in trying out for Team Canada

In late 2014 and 2016 Powerchair Football Canada (PFC) sent out an expression of interest for power soccer players interested in trying out for Powerchair Football Canada’s national team. With the Powercahir Football Conference of the America’s world cup qualifying tournament slated for 2019 PFC is sending out a new expression of interest for players interested in trying out for Team Canada.  PFC encourages all current Team Canada players to reapply and new players who are interested in joining Team Canada to submit their application.

Interested players must be aware:

  • Their attendance, at yet to be determined tournament and training camps, will be mandatory. Training camps and tournament allow Team Canada’s coaching staff to run athletes through training drills, demonstrate set plays and undertake a degree of player assessment.  
  • If selected to Team Canada players will have to make a significant time commitment to allow for ongoing training, and travel to selected training camps and tournaments.
  • If selected to Team Canada players may be expected to travel both nationally and internationally. Players will need to make a significant financial commitment to cover the required costs.  PFC is not in a position to help fund travel for players interested in attending those tournaments and training sessions.

Interested players are to submit their application to kencunningham@shaw.ca by March 15th, 2018. Applications are to:

  • indicate the name, address, phone number and email address of the player
  • indicate which team they currently play for and how many years they have played 
  • Indicate if they have had a formal powerchair football classification completed, and if so, what classification were they assessed at, and if it was a “confirmed” status.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at kencunningham@shaw.ca
