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.
