The Whitecaps Academy Centre will be hosting an information session on Monday, April 15th in the Nechako Elementary School gym from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The session is completely free to attend and will showcase an overview of their development plans for the Northwest area, followed by a Q&A portion. Hopefully, everyone is able to attend as they would like to meet as many people as possible, and learn from your opinions of what you would like to see for soccer in the Kitimat area.
