Pathway

Our Complete Player Pathway offers many opportunities for our players.

Whitecaps FC First Team (MLS) - is the top of the club model and where players aspire to reach. Residency players can enter the first team environment as they strive to play for Whitecaps FC in Major League Soccer (MLS), the top professional soccer league in the United States and Canada.

College and University Scholarship - opportunities are the primary goal for Whitecaps FC Girls Elite REX players, with every player to have come through the program having gone on to play collegiately. Pursuing college and university scholarships is also a secondary option for Whitecaps FC Residency players. The Whitecaps have established a Collegiate Network utilizing a centralized website with Profiles and Video Analysis.

National and Provincial - Canadian National Teams are a huge part of the Whitecaps FC club structure.
