By OSA News, 05/12/15, 11:15AM EDT


The Whitby Iroquois Soccer Club will have the privilege of hosting the latest Men's National Para Soccer Team camp at its Rossland Road location this between May 14-17.

National Coach Drew Ferguson has selected 14 players who will be competing at the World Championships next month in England at the Football Association headquarters.  The full team will be in attendance at this camp as final preparation are made, and the positions in the starting line up are still up for grabs.. The camp will focus on tactical phases of play in both offense and defense.

Canada finds itself in a very tough group with Holland (World Ranked 4th), Argentina (6th) and Northern Ireland (14th), but with talented young players being identified, Coach Ferguson has high hopes for this squad.  He expressed his gratitude to the Club, "We are excited and grateful that the Whitby Iroquois Soccer Club has opened up their arms and facility to host our players and staff."

Training is open to the public, and coaches, players and fans are positively encouraged to come and observe what could be described as Canada Soccer's best kept secret.

Training times are as follows:

Thursday - May 14 - 9:30am - 11:30am / 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Friday - May 15 - 9:30am - 11:30am / 3:00pm - 4:30pm
