Excellence/High performance soccer in Alberta is defined by the Long Term Player Development aligned pathway that is player-centred and coach-led with optimal support to enable players to reach toward Canada Soccer National Team Programming.

The identified environments within Alberta Soccer’s Excellence Stream are the Academy Centres for males and the Regional EXCEL (REX) centres for females. Both centres target players between U13 & U18.
