Thompson Okanagan Football Club players continue to make strides into higher levels of soccer in the province.

Several Kelowna players have been selected to phase two of the provincial development program.

Arianne Pauline-Turcotte (Under-13 girls), Sam McDonald (U-14 boys) and Alex Matsubara (U-15 boys), all from Kelowna, have advanced to the next stage in soccer’s high level programming model.

Also advancing were area players Maya Venkataramaran of Summerland (U-14 girls) and  Owen Miller Coldstream (U-13 boys), who play in the TOFC program, the highest level of youth soccer.

The provincial development program gets underway May 14 and winds up on the May 24, 26 weekend with participation in the Portland Timbers Cup tournament.

Meanwhile TOFC player Connor Glennon of Vernon was selected to attend a Vancouver Whitecaps residency. The Whitecaps pre-residency features players U-13 to U-15 separated into three squads. Players train in the evenings and attend their own schools. Exhibition matches are scheduled within the Pacific Northwest region against elite club teams.
