During the past four years in his hometown of Calgary, Kalischuk has honed his skills at the National Sports Academy Soccer Program while playing for Chinook United. With this experience, he has competed at some of the highest levels in the province, Western Canada and the state of Washington.

“Tyson is a gifted attack minded player who reads the game extremely well and has the ability to finish,” commented Coach Lawson. “One of the things that I am most excited about is that Tyson is a catalyst for his club and he generates scoring chances with his creativity. We have those same expectations for him here in the green and white. I am also encouraged by his work rate both on and off the field as Tyson will enter as an HU Honor student looking to study in the sciences and sports.”

Tyson is the son of Rocky and Kathi from Calgary, Alberta Canada. 
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 53 NAIA All-America honors and 187 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
