Island Training Centre
Welcome to the website of the new Island Training Centre Powered by Pacific, a place that will change soccer on Vancouver Island! The 55,000-square-foot facility on Kettle Lake Drive is the largest indoor field house in British Columbia.
“We’re trying to grow soccer on the Island,” said Pacific FC president Josh Simpson. “We want to build the culture of soccer and how do you do that? You get facilities like this one. It’s going to make soccer fun.”
After a summer of construction, Pacific Football Club announce the official opening on December 1st, 2019. The ITC Powered by Pacific is located at 2888 Kettle Lake Dr.
The Island Training Centre Powered by Pacific includes three artificial turf pitches and one hard ground pitch for multipurpose use (soccer, rugby, football, ultimate frisbee, fitness, ball hockey, yoga). Additionally, a TOCA field (learn more about TOCA), a FIFA football lounge and a space for birthday party celebrations round up the versatile offer.
Local sport clubs as well as self-organized groups will be able to reserve their times online and through the CPL Centre Circle App. Furthermore, Pacific 6, a series of leagues for different age groups will be running from December and soccer camps will be held frequently.

How long will I have to be at the facility for the tournament?
A. Tournaments typically run no longer then a 5 hour period. If your first game starts at 8:00 a.m. expect your last game to end no later than 1:00 p.m.
Are there finals for the tournament or is it just round robin?
A. Trying to align with Long Term Player Development we have decided that U14 and above tournaments will have finals where as U13 and below will just be round robin games and no standings will be kept.
What type of shoes can I wear?
A. Our field is very similar to the artificial turf field that you will se in any of your son or daughters weekend games. Some players prefer flat shoes, turf, shoes, multi cleats or blades. The only thing we ask is that you do not wear any studs or metals cleats on our turf.
How are divisions formed?
We do our best to try and match up like minded teams with other teams. We do not want a BCSPI team to be playing against a silver team. We may ask teams to play up an age group in order to make a division work properly. Often Tier 1 divisions are Metro or BCSPL groups with Tier 2 being gold/silver or house divisions. We will do our best to ensure that all teams involved have a positive experience at the tournament.
What is the difference in Tier 1 and Tier 2?
A. If you are a BCSPL, Metro or VIPL team we are asking you to register in the Tier 1 division. We may also ask if you are okay playing up an age group in order to make your experience a more enjoyable one. If you are a gold, silver or house team we ask that you register in a Tier 2 tournament.
My question is not on here. Where can I go for more information?
A. Please email email@example.com for any questions.
