Spring soccer at KPU

Kwantlen Eagles host CIs, PACWEST opposition at Newton Athletic Park

With support from its students, the Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) Eagles will host both men’s and women’s soccer teams at its second-annual Spring Pre-season Tournament.

Sponsored by the Kwantlen Students Association (KSA), four men’s and four women’s teams will participate in the two-day tournament Feb. 28 to March 1 at Newton Athletic Park. The first day of the tournament will run in conjunction with KPU’s Surrey Campus Open House.

The Eagles, members of the PACWEST (Pacific Western Athletic Conference) and the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades of the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sports), will field teams in both men’s and women’s competition.

Other men’s teams will include the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack and the University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds, both of the CIS.

Also competing in the women’s tournament will be the Simon Fraser University Clan of the Greater Northwest Athletic Conference and the UBC – Okanagan Heat of the CIS.

“By scheduling both KPU teams during the Open House, we are able to showcase varsity athletics to students who may become student-athletes, fans, or even student-employees with our department,” said David Kent, KPU Eagles Director of Athletics and Recreation. “We are pleased to work in collaboration with the KSA to showcase just one of many ways to connect with the university, to get involved, and to develop skills beyond the classroom.”
