BC Soccer announces, Michael Findlay is leaving the association to join the Canadian Soccer Association

Vancouver BC August 27, 2014 – Findlay, after 9 years of supporting, leading and delivering positive change in the areas of coaching and player development with BC Soccer, will be leaving to join the Canadian Soccer Association in the full time role of National Staff Coach and will serve as Assistant Coach with the Men’s National Team.

“Michael has been involved with Canada Soccer’s Youth National Teams for some time now and his full time progression to Canada Soccer as a coach with the Men’s National Team is something we should all be very proud of,” stated Roger Barnes, BC Soccer President.  Barnes added “This demonstrates recognition for Michael’s expertise, and just as every player dreams of playing for Canada, we are delighted Michael has attained his goal of coaching our national team.”

During his time with BC Soccer Findlay has been instrumental in leading the game from a technical perspective.  His tireless work touched so many across the province of BC with some of the few key highlights being, the establishment and technical leadership of the first ever High Performance Youth League in Canada (the BC Soccer Premier League), fostering excellent relationships with our local professional club partner (Vancouver Whitecaps FC) to support a ‘new’ player pathway in BC, directing the implementation of a province wide grassroots service plan initiative which has engaged almost 4,000 coaches via 300 workshops over the past 3 years and, been a leading driver for change in improving the environment for young players to develop which has led to BC Soccer recently committing to ‘unanimously’ member supported mandatory age specific coach education.  Findlay’s player centric approach to all the work he was involved has been woven into the programming of BC Soccer and will continue on.   

“Since I arrived at BC Soccer over 3 years ago, Mike has provided outstanding support for me as I have adjusted to the soccer environment in BC and my roles. He has also continued to educate me on the many aspects he and his team of highly dedicated and committed staff are responsible for.” stated Paul Mullen, BC Soccer Executive Director.  “This has proved to be invaluable and I personally appreciate all he has done for me and BC Soccer during the time we have worked together.” Mullen added.

BC Soccer, on behalf of the board, staff and wider membership wishes Michael all the best as he progress to the national and global stage in his new and exciting role with Canada Soccer.

Findlay’s new role with the Canadian Soccer Association starts on October 1, 2014.
