April 17, 2014 • Winnipeg, Manitoba

Kyle Hiebert, young star player for WSA Winnipeg, received a call to Canada’s U18 National team tryouts in early April being held in Ventura, California.  The camp was being used as preparation for the 2015 CONCACAF U20 Championships, a qualifying tournament for the World Cup, as well as the FIFA U20 World Cup being held in New Zealand in 2015.

When Kyle received the invite he was excited and thankful at the same time saying, “I would like to thank WSA Winnipeg's coaching staff and players for they were instrumental in my development. Coaches Eduardo and William have always pushed me to the next level whether that is for the national team or a professional environment. Every practice they keep the level of play up because good training and good habits really do equal success no matter what sport you're in. The opportunity to play in the PDL League has been invaluable. The talented players at WSA Winnipeg have also been a great influence on me by showing what it takes to be a winner.”

The Canadian squad ended their camp with a pair of friendly competitions versus the United States and Mexican squads in Redondo Beach, California.  Kyle played a full 90 minutes versus the Mexican team leaving new Canadian U20 team head coach Rob Gale with a very good impression going forward.

Coach Rob Gale said, “Kyle did very well for his first camp and adapted to the speed and quality players quickly keeping his game simple and quick.”  Coach Gale went on, “he was very good one v one, showed great battling qualities and composure against a quality opponent.”

WSA Winnipeg head coach Eduardo Badescu was not surprised by Kyle’s performance.  “Kyle is an extremely hard-working and talented young player who is a top performer on our team.” Coach Badescu stated.  “The future is wide open for Kyle as his work ethic and dedication to the game are second to none.” Coach Badescu went on.
