Vancouver Whitecaps FC

I had the pleasure of spending nearly two weeks at the Grande Sports World complex, along with Vancouver Whitecaps FC players and other technical staff, and I highly recommend this facility to any professional club.

The training facilities, including fields and fully equipped gymnasium, are first-rate, as are the living quarters and restaurant. Everything is in close proximity, which is very convenient.

The sports complex can accommodate multiple teams, with each team enjoying the use of their own private training areas, locker room, gymnasium, showers, treatment room, classrooms, video screening room and laundry facilities. In addition, the entire staff at Grande Sports World are professional and very accommodating.

Another highlight is the climate. We were there in early February and the weather was ideal for training and playing. Many MLS teams choose to train in the area, which also means quality opponents that are readily available for matches.

Best Decision of My Life

Joining Grande Sports Academy was one of the best and most influential decisions in my life to this day. Everyone at the Grande was so helpful with everything. They for sure have the best academy coaches in the country. The coaches prepare you physically, tactically, technically, and most importantly mentally for the next level. To this day I use a lot of things I learned or heard at the academy. There is no place like the Grande. You literally sleep, eat, and play soccer. I will never stop speaking highly about the Grande because I had the best academy experience.

Amazing Soccer Experience

Thank you for giving me an amazing soccer experience. The coaching staff and facilities made me feel as if I was a professional soccer player. I also feel that I made lifelong friends and that my soccer skills have improved greatly.


Grand Canyon University

This is our second preseason here, I can’t describe how great it’s been. It’s brought us together not only as far as preseason training, athletic training, but also as a retreat: staying together in the hotel, having great meals and the facilities and soccer fields are first class. We’re just very lucky and fortunate to be able to be here.

A Dream Come True

I wanted to take this time to thank you for taking such good care of Kyle while he was a resident at Grande Sports Academy this past year.

This has been one of the greatest experiences for Kyle and we will never forget it. I could only dream of having an opportunity like this one growing up as a child and this is just another dream come true for Kyle.

Kyle has become a much better soccer player, student and most importantly is growing into a fantastic young man. I attribute this to the discipline and the programs that you have at the Grande but also to the space and freedom that was offered to the boys.

Again, I want to personally thank you for taking an interest in my son’s life and wanting him to exceed and to excel at a higher level. You have accomplished your goals!
