Chinooks Soccer Club is home to the best Soccer Players in Calgary since 1974.

Our club offers programs for all ages. Focused on skill development for the younger players and continues into the older age groups with Academy Team Sessions.

Club Academy & Team Training Objectives

The academy and team training curriculum are structured to explore the development of the athlete to reach his/her personal goal and to improve in the team atmosphere. All of the club technical staff are highly educated and qualified to develop every concept of the game. We are providing a supportive, effective and innovative program that will empower players to improve their level of play. The training process will be consistent within training objectives, progressive in application and game related.

While our players train and compete as a unit and/or team our priority is to focus at all times on the individual player’s technical, tactical, physical and psychosocial development.

Goalkeeper Training

Goalkeeper training is part of our Academy.  Goalkeepers are provided position-specific training to go along with team-based training to round out their overall goalkeeper development.  All ages and divisions are invited to attend.
