SPECIAL COVID-19 NOTE FOR 2020-2021 SEASON: 
We are optimistic that our 2020-2021 season will operate uninterrupted and are proceeding with Registration on that basis. In the event that there is an interruption (including any 2021 outdoor season cancellation)  we will look to providing parents some form of pro-rated relief through a partial refund of fees based on time away from on-field training and/or gameplay. Any such refund needs to keep in mind that some costs such as indoor/outdoor field rental, referees, coaching hours can be pro-rated, however hard costs of player registration, players insurance and league participation are either pre-paid non-refundable expenses.

Are there any subsidy programs that can assist with payment of fees?

The Canadian Tire JUMPSTART program: 

Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.  

 

The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.

 

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.

Will a specific methodology be taught in training sessions?

Our Academy instructors and staff are highly trained in Tactical Periodization and its principles will form the core of the training models that transform how Canadians play soccer.   Current models and approaches to soccer in Canada result in overtraining, unnecessary injury and running fitness however they don't focus on quick decision making...the core of elite soccer play. Our focus will be on skill and not size and strength.  Our collective experience building and developing top talents in Europe will be transferred to the Canadian landscape

September 03, 2016

Is this a proven methodology?

Periodization is derived from 'Period' which is a division of time into smaller, easy-to-manage segments.  In our case ''Training Periods'. Specifically, periodization is the division of a yearly training plan into training phases which apply to the principles of training.  Work load and intensity of training programs in split into successive small units ranging from one week to a full year. Each segment of training targets a specific type of training (i.e. skill, speed, strength, stamina and suppleness (the five S’s).  In football these fitness attributes need to be blended with both technical and tactical training.  A well designed training program takes into account both the physiological and psychological needs of players.
