What factors made you choose Chinooks? Do they still apply?
“We initially chose Chinooks based on geography: The practice fields were a short drive from our house. I was also looking for a club where the coaches were knowledgeable “soccer people”, and the technical academy training was at an elite level. We found that with the Chinooks. We are very happy with our choice. We would continue to play with Chinooks even if we moved further away. The club is worth the drive.” – Parent, U10 & U12
“We chose Chinooks originally based on the small club philosophy. By having a smaller group of players the trainers can focus and deliver a high level of personal training to the team.” – Parent, U8 & U10
