Bourkevale: A soccer mecca

Bourkevale Community Centre kicked off its spring soccer season last week, hosting five local teams ranging in ages from five to 13. The club is fielding two 5/6 teams again this year, one 7/8 squad, a U11 boys team and a U13 girls club.
It's expected to be another exciting season at Bourkevale with the club's 5/6 teams and 7/8 squad playing their home games on BCC's freshly lined soccer fields. Grab your lawn chairs and come out and cheer on our budding athletes who normally play Monday to Thursday around 6 p.m.
Meanwhile, Bourkevale is rapidly becoming a popular centre for St. James and Charleswood soccer organizations with a number of developmental teams choosing the club to hold regular practices and clinics.
Portage Trail Soccer held its annual spring kick-off at the club over a three-day period last week, drawing over 125 soccer players to Bourkevale's sprawling greenspace. PTS has also selected Bourkevale to hold its weekly soccer academies and a number of individual PTS teams hold regular practices at the club.
Bourkevale has indeed become a Winnipeg soccer mecca.
