Andersen Williams has climbed another mountain… and it overlooks Nicaragua this time!
A member of our Premiers 02 team, Andersen left home last year with teammate Allie Remington and both have been living in British Columbia as residents of the Whitecaps FC / Super Rex program. Both athletes were chosen & invited to the program & are now living on their own, attending a new school and being apart of one of the strongest programs available to elite players in the country!
In an earlier post, we announced that Andersen had been invited into one of the final stages of the Canadian National Team Selection Camps.
It is now official and announced this week, that Andersen was named to the CANADIAN NATIONAL TEAM ROSTER for the 2018 CONCACAF U-17 Championship!
(That was surreal to type!)

Andersen – we will give you some major wind at your back.
