Cavalry FC is hoping youth serves them well.

Especially a youngster from their own backyard.

Born in 2001, Calgary’s soccer entry in the Canadian Premier League has
made its youngest signing in Victor Loturi, a 17-year-old native of the city.

Loturi grew up playing youth soccer with the Calgary Northside Soccer Club
from age 8 through 17.

“I signed with Cavalry FC because (GM/head coach) Tommy (Wheeldon Jr.)
believed in me and gave me the opportunity to play professional soccer in
my home town,” Loturi said. “I’ve always wanted to play professional soccer,
and now that it’s happened, I have to keep working and keep myself
accountable.”

Loturi has represented Alberta Soccer at numerous age groups through his
rise to soccer glory, including in the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

Prior to being offered a contract with Cavalry FC, Victor spent the past
winter season in the Calgary Foothills FC Generation Program where he was
coached by his now-teammate Jay Wheeldon.

Cavalry FC is thrilled to capture the signature of young Loturi, who becomes
one of the club’s players to meet the under-21 domestic player requirements
of the league. Under the CPL operating rules, each team can sport a maximum
of 23 players on the roster, three of which must be under 21 years of age
(born Jan. 1, 1998, or younger).The significance of this league rule is to
continue to develop young Canadians, and the U21s are required to play a
minimum of 1,000 combined minutes in regular league play.

“Victor validates why we needed the Canadian Premier League,” said
Wheeldon Jr. “He’s a quality young player that we have a very high opinion
on and deserves a professional opportunity.

“Fortunately for Victor, this opportunity happens to be for his hometown
team, where he can play in front of his family and friends,” Wheeldon Jr.
continued. “He will be the youngest player on our roster at 17 years of age,
but he plays the game with such maturity and finesse that is far beyond his
years. Victor is certainly one to keep an eye out for.”

Cavalry FC continues its training camp with an intrasquad game this
Saturday in preparation for the organization’s first-ever CPL match
Saturday, May 4, against visiting York9 FC at Spruce Meadows (1:30 p.m.).

Congratulations to the CNS Madrid for representing CNS at provincials!!

What an amazing achievement!!  CNS is very proud of you!!!

 

Calgary, AB – Calgary Northside Soccer Club (“CNS”) and FC Metro Soccer Club (“FC Metro”) announce a soccer collaboration to provide quality service delivery to the soccer community in the Northwest of Calgary. CNS is a leading Club in the Northwest of Calgary including competing at provincial championships and also representing Alberta at the National Level. FC Metro has emerged as a strong grassroots club focused delivering quality skill development and strong coach education to communities in the Northwest. The collaboration will have a clear goal to provide greater resources and an improved overall experience for players.

CNS will now be the Official Community Provider for the communities of Kincora, Sherwood, Sage Hill, Nolan Hill, Citadel and Hamptons and provide soccer from U4 to U19. This large grassroots base will allow for like minded and like skilled players to be playing together on a wider range of teams within the combined larger entity.

CNS is very pleased to have this collaboration that provides a larger player pool so kids can play at the right level, as well as allowing the more competitive player to achieve their potential.  CNS will always remain focused on a fun based, developmental grassroots soccer program in the community and serving the community needs.”

CNS will also be partnered with and supported by Calgary Foothills Soccer Club (“Foothills”) as their preferred partner for the eventual Alberta Youth League, as well as elite development pathways offered by Foothills.

Foothills has some unique resources in the City of Calgary that CNS will be supported by and have access, such as:

  • The only full-size Fieldhouse with an international size, soccer specific field that is 84,000 square feet and also has FIFA Grade A Fieldturf.
  • The only USL2 (formerly the PDL) team in Calgary and Alberta. The USL 2 league is a league of over 70 teams in Canada and the United States and Foothills is the reigning National Champions.
  • A United Women’s Soccer league team (“UWS”) which is currently the Conference Champion. The UWS is Division 2 in the United States Soccer Federation under the NWSL.

CNS will continue to run programs U4 to U19 in the community.  As a player gets older, U17 Tier 1 players will have additional developmental pathways open to them to achieve their full potential.  Players can opt to play within CNS or be invited to the USL2 or UWS developmental program.
