From Nova Scotia to Manitoba to Vancouver Island, the Whitecaps are laying down roots all across Canada in a bid to maximize their youth system. Feature on the club's unique regional academy centers, which are starting to payoff with first team signings.

    How many academy players starting? Ref, Russel, Melvin, NormanJr, Baldisimo etc... I will say they have had a better academy than TFC and Montreal, but they play their “own”players.
The Academy has been among the best in North America for 8-9 years!

    That's the step they need to take. Should've given attention to it in the piece. Apart from Davies and Teibert (who has played plenty in his career), they haven't given academy kids much of a chance. Will it change? I don't know. That's a different article. Maybe I'll write it.

    Don’t forget the province of Newfoundland and Labrador Sam. We have a group up there as well.

    Yet they can't get out and watch their local youth players unless the players come to them at a showcase or HPP week, and only if playing in 1 league.

    What goes on with the limitations on scouting within a radius? Is this being done away with anytime soon?
