The first ID camp will take place in Ottawa on September 24th at Confederation High School from 1:30-4pm.

Players in Quebec will have their chance from October 28-30th through the QSF while the west coast will look to shine on November 4-6th as the BCSA will host the final portion. The player selection process along with venue and time information for those two ID camps are still unknown but will be posted when they are announced.
The top players selected from all camps will then be brought together for a national camp which will take place from December 16-23rd in a yet to be determined location.
There are additional plans to perhaps compete in a tournament before the 2012 CONCACAF Futsal Championships, rumoured to be in Guatemala.
