U19 Professional Development Training Program

Who We Are

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Orix Soccer Academy identifies and develops players who believe they have the potential to become professional or university/collegiate level players, but are not afforded a pathway through the existing soccer system.

Our U19 Professional Development Training Program offers a comprehensive full week, year round professional development training program for players ages 15-18 in order to prepare players for professional football trials and university/collegiate soccer placement opportunities.

Life Lasting Experience

Each year our program travels overseas to participate in an international youth tournament. The trips are an experience of a lifetime and affords the players an opportunity to play against top level European youth football clubs and academies. In 2018, Orix Academy U19 Development Team traveled to Gothenburg Sweden to play in the world famous Gothia Cup aka “The Youth World Cup”. GOTHIACUP.SE


Orix does not conduct open tryouts. Any player can request an individual tryout at any point in the program year at no cost. The player will be invited to train with the program for 1-3 weeks before a determination is made on whether the player is a good fit for the program.
