Mini and Recreational Soccer
To provide a soccer program where all children feel welcome and are given the opportunity to develop the foundational skills to enjoy playing soccer as children and into adulthood.
Using the standards set out by Soccer Canada we strive to provide the best environment possible for player development and for players to enjoy the game. We are player centered, meaning our players are the primary focus of our program. We are continually working towards serving our community by creating programming that reduces barriers and reflects the diversity of our community. Our intention is to provide a welcoming environment where all individuals feel included and valued as active participants.
We are always looking for coaches, conveners and equipment managers. Click the image below to see available positions
We have designed our program to meet youth where they are; we strive to create developmentally appropriate programming. We want children to learn the right skills at the appropriate time to ensure that they can be successful and more confident in their abilities. Our program is designed with Long-Term Player Development principles in mind, and according to Canada Soccer grassroots standards.
