Golden Golden Bears soccer try-outs for Fall 2015

Golden Bears Soccer Try-outs and Schedule – 2015 

The CIS soccer season is fast approaching and plans are well underway for the Golden Bears soccer team for competition in the Canada West conference this fall. 

A very strong group of players has committed to joining the program for the fall 2015 season and competition for places will be greater than ever!  The goal is always to succeed at the Canada West conference level and challenge for Canada West and CIS honors and with the quality and experience of players coming to the program, I’m anticipating continued Golden Bears successes.

The try-outs and training camp will begin on Monday, August 24th 2015 where all players are required to check-in and at least one week prior to this date fax a completed medical form to the Athletics Office (780-492-7307).  Any players interested and seeking to play Golden Bears soccer are encouraged to contact Head Coach Len Vickery directly via e-mail at len.vickery@ualberta.ca

About us:

The Golden Bears soccer program has been in existence since 1969 and has achieved four CIS/CIAU National Championships in 2006, 2003, 1979 and 1972 and ten (2011, 2003, 1999, 1998, 1995, 1988, 1981, 1979, 1973 and 1972) Canada West Championships. Further, the program has been a regular at CIS/CIAU National Championships and has been tremendously successful in winning medals when a further six national silver medal performances (1999, 1998, 1995, 1994, 1981 and 1973) are factored into the overall National Championship record.

In total, the Golden Bears have made a total of 13 appearances at the CIAU/CIS National Championships and have won 10 total medals. During Len Vickery’s 30 years as coach, the Golden Bears have made 10 of the 12 Canadian Intercollegiate Sport (CIS) National Championship appearances achieving a total of 6 medals (2 gold and 4 silver).
